Novell is over-riding Win2k autologon!

By M Trump ·
Hopefully, this will be an easy answer for some of you who have worked with Win 2000 for a while now. Here's my problem, I am getting ready to deploy Windows 2000 Prof. on a computer lab in my district where many different users will be logging on/off daily. Here's the kick: our LAN uses Novell BUT for some reason, when a user logs in using the client (version 4., Microsoft's autologon apparently is disabled! Without Novell, it's a breeze....you set the machine to automatically log on a user and that's that. With Novell, even though a user is set to automatically log on to the station (no password for the user), whenever a different person logs onto the Novell client, windows asks for a desktop login as well.

HELP!! I need to have these machines able to have anyone log into the Novell client without asking them to provide a seperate password to enter the desktop (especially since there is a box that allows the users to match the desktop login with their Novell password.....(NOT GOOD)

You can use the very basic package of Zenworks and install Novell Workstation manager on each workstation in addition to the standard client. The workstation manager is included with the Novell client install program.

Install Zenworks on your Network, then create workstation and user policies in your NetWare network. The one that will solve this problem is the WinNT-Win2000 User Package. This package includes a Workstation import policy and a Dynamic Local User.

You enable the import policy and you will be able to see each workstation within NDS and manipulate items on each workstation. With Dynamic Local User, you can tell the workstation to create user accounts on the workstation that match the username and password from NDS.

I believe the basic Zenworks package is free, as is the Workstation Manager.

Messing w/ Zenworks = time consuming and no support from our Net Admin (at least, not without twisting arms) I've found a way to accomplish what I need through a registry edit in Win2k (answered in another post)
Thanx anyway!
