Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows


When changing the user's password, if the user doesn't correctly type the same password in both the "password" and "confirm password" fields, he gets an error as expected. But, after retyping the passwords so that they do match, the Windows password gets changed, but the eDirectory password does not get changed.

The fix for this bug has been released in the following patch:
