In Microsoft Project Web Access (PWA), when you try to access the Portfolio Analyzer and use the Pivot Table functionality on a Novell authenticated only network, you may experience the following symptoms:
  • Project Server 2002 may stop responding.
  • The Office Web Components (OWC) pivot-table may fail without an error.
  • You may not be able to access the OLAP cube.
These symptoms occur if Project Server 2002 or PWA is used in a Novell environment with only Novell authentication.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.


OWC tries to bind to the cube by using Microsoft Windows NT authentication. OWC cannot find the Analysis Services computer in the same domain if Novell NetWare Directory Services (NDS) is used for authentication.
