retain last username used

By voiceNdataNYC ·
On some of our workstations, when the Netware 5 login screen appears, it will "retain" the last username entered, while on others, it stubbornly holds onto a username that may not have been used in the past weeks (or months). Example: If I have logged into a machine with an administrative name, logoff, and then have UserX reboot and log in with his name, my administrative name is retained in the login field, regardless of how many times that person logs in.

How do I have it "remember" onlythe last username?

Check the properties of the client, if its 3.2 or newer, to see if the "Save profile on exit" box is checked. Its under Location Profiles, Default Location Properties, Default Service Properties.

For older clients, look for a registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NOVELLNP\NetworkProvider\DisplayLastUserName. But in this case I think if its set to 0, you get a blank login ID field, rather than the behavior you describe.
