Cannot edit registry on W2K or Win NT4

By dsimpson ·
I found that as soon as I log in to a W2K Pro or Win nT4 workstation through Netware, I get a message "Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator". This happens with different clients. I am running NW4.11 Sp9 and my workstations havethe latest windows patches. This message appears when I attempt to edit the registry with an administrative account other than the local administrator account on NT or W2K. I have tried different PCs, clients, and clean installs of NT. It happensas soon as I login to Netware either through the microsoft client or tine netware client.

Sounds like the admin has setup some policies for everyone that logs in. Go to your nwadmin and look for a policy object in what ever context you login to. Then do the following:
Double click on the nt policy object
enter the user system policyclick details (another window should open)
scroll down until you see System
Click on the plus (+) sign
Click on restrictions
click box next to Disable Registry editing (remove check)
Make sure the box is in disable mode not in ignore - because when login again and you have the box in ignore the system will just ignore this in your profile file that is on the workstation
click OK
Click Cancel
Exit nwadmin
exit out of the workstation you having problem with
log back in to the workstation
