Account Policies: Working with Win2k

By d.jones092 ·

I have a network with 3 Windows 2k servers, and 1 Netware 4.2 server. The clients are Win98, with Client for MS Windows being the primary, and Client for Netware also installed (the MS flavor). How does the logon work? Does the MS client for Netware accept the logon parameters from the MS client for Windows, then pass them to the Netware server?

Thanks for any info.

Generally speaking, the userid and password supplied at login are cached, and used to authenticate to any additional network resources. If they don't work with a particular resource, the user is prompted for a new set of credentials.

So, if your Windows userid and password are the same as your NetWare userid and password, you'll only have to "login" once. Further authentication happens in the background. This is true regardless of which client is primary.
