Novell and Windows XP - User Profile

By rajsrk ·
At present all our PC?s are connected to Novell 4.11 server and 80 % of the PC?s are Windows XP. If I log in to windows 2003 server it creates a different profile in the PC so that the existing configuration of the PC is not available even though the user name and pass words are same. I have tried copy the local profile to the domain profile then it gives the same desktop but most of the programs are not accessible.

Kindly help me on this and give me a solution for the same.

Thanks

Rajesh

Are you using the Netware client from Novell(4.91 sp2) or the client supplied by M$ for Netware?
The one from M$ is broken and not particulary well suited for any type of Netware connectivity.

Sounds like the PC's are members of the Windows Domain. When they log into Novell they are most likely using the local machine account. When they are logging into Windows server they will get a different profile. Check to see if the PC is a member of the Domain. If they are which it sounds like, then when they log into the Novell box they should still be able to access the Domain profile through a cached profile.

Just a thought about but having profiles on a Netware 4 machine and accessing theough XP. Do these kind of profiles not require a Windows Server with intelimirror?

If you are going to post a question at least look at the responses and rate them. Honestly....
