Disable Novell Login for Windows Login

By dkuber ·
i have XP SP2, and installed the novell client 4.** so i can map to our server at work on occasion.

i do not want the novell login screen to appear, since all other users in the household only need the windows login screen.

how can i change the settings so that the primary login for the computer is Windows, not Novell?

thanks y'all!

Ask users to tick Workstation only before logging on (that will temporarily disable Novell login for that session).

There is an option in the client properties that should disable the prompt. Look under one of the advanced tabs(ie: advanced login, advanced menu, etc.) There is an option called something to the effect of force novell login prompt, this should be disabled. In NT style systems this is enabled by default. I will try and find the exact location, i just dont have the client currently installed on the machine im on.

OK, found the exact location of what should work.

Look under advanced login in novell client properties. In advanced login tab there is an option for initial novell login. According to the info this controls the prompt when first logging into the PC. Disable(turn off) this prompt and you should se your windows login.
