Novell 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)

Novell over-riding Win2k autologon!

This is not a W2K Pro issue but a Novell client issue.
It can usually be solved by activating the 'workstation manager' part of the Novell client, and configuring it so that dynamically a local W2K Pro account is created being the same as the Novell account. Upon logoff, the account can be removed again. In the WS manager, you configure which W2K Pro group the dynamic account belongs to - make sure that group has the correct rights.

Hope thiz helpz,
