ZEN - Admin login on workstation groups

By d ·
I have a need to control who logs into a workstation via groups. How do I give Admin login rights to workstation groups.

Environment: Novell v5.1, Zenworks Starter pack v2, NT4 Workstations with Client v4.71

Workstations are registered nicely. The workstation groups have printer policy packages running fine. Users are currently authenticating at login within an NT domain. The NT domain servers are running NDS for NT Corporate Edition.

I want to pull the workstations out of the domain and control user access via NDS. I can see how to globally allow Admin rights but want to constrict Admin login rights to the NDS ?Workstation Group? objects via NDS ?User Group? objects. Giving ?User Group? objects login rights to ?Workstation Group? objects.

Let me see if I get things right. Simplified, there are 2 groups of users (uGRP1 and uGRP2), and you want them both to be able to log in to all workstations, which are in groups too (wGRP1 and wGRP2), be it that they need to have administrator privileges on their "own" workstations, and simple users on "the other's" workstations.
First of all, workstation groups are meant to be given applications or workstation policies to. Those policies have nothing to do with user-related stuff, except ifthey are allowed to log in or not. If you set restrictions to the desktop or whatever in those policies, the user's policy will overrule them.
So, you want to make certain people administrators. You do that via User Policy/Dynamic Local User. You'll have to make two different policies, if you want two kinds of local users (administrator or user, for example). You cannot however indicate on which PCs this is effective or not, since this is a user policy, ie effective on all associated users.
In short, Darrin, as far as I know you seem to asking a little too much flexibility for the moment. Login yes/no to certain workstations, no problem. Login as admin on one and as user on another, nope, not via ZEN.
