Novell Client32 vs. NT(Client for Micros

By ghale ·
We sometimes need to setup notebook's with profiles for different locations - the problem is that some locations have Novell networks and some have NT. Is there a way to disable client32 in the profile for the NT locations other than uninstalling?

Novell Client32 vs. NT(Client for Micros

I do not believe there is a way to disable the Novell Client based on a profile. Since it replaces the MSGINA with the NWGINA it is everpresent. There are ways around it. The later Novell clients have a workstation only option that will bypass Netware authentication entirely (just a bit of user training involved) or the Microsoft client for Netware can be installed (the only function I don't have with that is NWAdmin won't work.) Most other services work well, except for print captures and mapping ... and that may be a factor. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further. mtomas@cagctg.com

I don't understand? If their is not a Novell server present, it will not stop at a Client 32 login prompt. Therefore if you have both the Netware and the Microsoft client installed...if there is not a novell server present it bypass the Client 32 and stop at the microsoft client.

It is a nasty failure on Novells part not to have allowed the "location profiles" to include configurations that are "workstation only" (a misnomer since it usually is still a domain login.) Perhaps enough complaints to Novell will get this fixed in the next client release. With version 4.8 and Windows 2000 there is a way to do something close to what you discribe. I did it by accident and had to reinstall the client. What I really want is the Novell client to always run. But it should letthe user select a location profile with no Novell authenticator.
