Zenworks/Netware Licensing Problems

By dcomm ·
I have recently loaded Zenworks 2.2 onto my Intranetware 4.11 server. I was having no problems registering workstation clients on the network until I started running out of licenses for my users. When I troubleshooted the problem I determined thatusers that I had registered for the Zenworks were showing under Active Connections on the file server TWO times. Once for their normal user login and once for the Zenworks terminal address. For example, DCOMM and Term6468.weirton.hcsb would both show as active connections. Does Novell have any answers for this?

Actually when you have all the workstations imported and Zen is set up, each user/workstation will use four connections. Two for the user and two for the workstation. Following is an excerpt from a Novell TI

Connection 2 - User connection that is licensedon servers (s) where the user is using resources. This includes servers where you have mapped drives or captured ports. In addition licensed connections are required to read information from NDS such as login scripts and policy packages. In this instance the client should clear the licensed connection after 30 sec of not using it. Mapped drives and captured ports keep a continuous license.

Connection 3 - The monitored connection for the workstation object. This is unlicensed, and shows withan asterisk. It is u

Workstations log in too. Why? Suppose you have NAL applications running as secure user, the workstation's account is used to access network resources, like files or directories. Or if you assign applications to workstations, those workstations need access to files and directories as well, so they need to be logged in.
