Novell Login With RAS

By steveb ·
We are trying to set up laptops running Win2K Pro to dial-in to a RAS server. The laptops have Novell Client 4.81 installed and are setup as members of the domain so that Exchange e-mail can be accessed. Is there any way to either bypass the Novell login at start up (Novell is required for access to their network drives) so that the user could launch the Novell login after they were connected to the RAS (which they have to do anyway to map their drives), or to have Novell default to logging into the local computer rather than attempting to log in on the domain and generating a "domain controller not found" error? I realize that the user can just select the advanced tab on Novell and change from the domain to the local computer, but I would prefer a solution that doesn't require user intervention (and my time explaining over and over again how to log in).

Novell Login With RAS

There are a few solutions, and they are described in this Novell TI
http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/10052847.htm
(remove any spaces in the URL if they show up).

It explains a lot of possible scenarios (auto-logon to NT, no logon to NDS, auto-logon to NDS, manual logon to NT, and so on, all sorts of combinations) and what to do to get there, for various Client32 versions. I'm sure you'll find something that suits your situation.
You can for example set the logon-domain to the PC-name (so it won't look for a domain), and disable a login in NDS (so it will logon to the workstation). After that people can browse and get a logon-screen when they access a volume or a printer.
