    IBM Laptop logon

    Locked

    by francisw ·

    One of my IBM Laptop 390x with IBM PC card, running Windows 98, when it first boot up, it always boots to windows logon, if I want to connect to my NT server, I need to first logoff from local windows and re-logon the second time, only then is network available. My other desktop computer have no such problem with network. My users usually always geet the network logon as soon as the computers boot. Any ideas please?

      I would go to the Control Panel, Network Icon, check the Client for Microsoft. Make sure that the Domain name is entered correctly, and the box checked. If you have the laptop and desktop together, you can compare settings and see what is different.

      Right click on Network Neighborhood, click on Properties. Make sure the Primary Network Logon is set for Client for Microsoft Networks and not Windows Logon. Hope this helps.

      In the network properties is a check off for Log onto Windows NT Domain. Check this off and it should fix your problem.

      The first thing you want to set is log onto windows NT domain under client for MS networks. This will prompot the user for a network login when they boot up.

      I would then setup a hardware profile on the laptop for say a network configuration and a non-network configuration. In the later config, you’ll want to disable the NIC in the device manager.

      What this does will prompt the user with a menu on bootup. When they choose the network options, they should get the NT login screen, when the choose non-network, becuase the nic is disabled, they’ll get a regular windows login only prompting for a username and password. All they need to do is pretty OK on that and it’ll let them onto the desktop.

      I’ve had varying luck also installing the Ms family login along with Client for MS networks and then setting the type of login the family login. This seems to let the person just turn on the machine and just choose network or dialup and then it’ll log them in respectively. I don’t like to do this

      I have experienced the exact same problem!

      Besides all the answers mentioned above, I’ve tried more and none work.

      I’ve checked for autologon’s or anything that might help. Reinstalling the Microsoft client makes no difference either. Though it usually logs in as an empty (default) user, it has at times logged in with a valid user id without the password.

      1. All password lists have been removed.
      2. Full client removal and reinstallation w/ valid domain settings verified.
      3. Autologon verified disabled.
      4. Clear or Retain last user on restart = same.

      The only way I seemed to have fixed it is by removing all network software. Delete the NIC software/INF from the laptop. Then Reintall networking from scratch, reinstalling the NIC driver. Maybe to no effect, but I also deleted the HKLM/Network and HKLM/CCS/Control/ NetworkProvider, PwdProvider keys before rebooting. Glad to see my Dell laptop wasn’t alone. If you have a docking config, do the above to both profiles before reinstalling networki

        Tried all that, didn’t work. CAlled IBM, tech told me to call Microsoft for a patch. I solved the problem with Win95b, it worked, but don’t know why. Any ideas welcome. Thanks for everyone.
