Thanks for the feedback everyone. What we've tried so far is deleting and recreating user accounts - that didn't work.
Just by chance, we recreated a user account that used to exist at one time and had admin rights - but we didn't place it in the administrators group this time - just Domain users and UVUsers (the group we setup with rights to logon locally) and low and behold we can login to Universe with that account. So, the only pattern we can see is that we can only login to Universe with any user account in the administrators group that happened to exist before the machine was upgraded to Windows 2003 SBS. No amount of tinkering around with any other user accounts or creating new accounts gets allows us to establish a telnet connection. Very bizarre. A little history - the server was running Win NT4, then Win2k Server was installed as an upgrade, followed by Win 2003 SBS. We checked all the file permissions, etc on all Universe folders /bin, etc and all the Universe database paths and they where and always have been wide open - full permissions to 'everyone'. joe > -----Original Message----- > From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Joe Walter > Sent: Monday, April 19, 2004 12:31 PM > To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Subject: Users can't login to UV after upgrade from NT4 to 2003 SBS > > > Having a strange problem at a client site. > > There sysadmins upgraded the server running Universe from NT4 > to Windows > 2003 Small Business Server. > > Everything seemed OK, until regular domain users tried to > login to universe. > It seems to accept username/password but then telnet session > terminates immediately afterward. > > Only two users can log in.
