Novell client / Windows AdminAutoLogin


G

Guest

Presently, my client workstations are WinXP/SP2 which are logged in at the
click of a "button" with a generic domain user account via AdminAutoLogin as
declared in the Winlogon registry section. I would like this to remain this
way with one exception: Prior to the autologin, I need to install/configure
Novell client (v4.91) pointing to our LDAP server independent from our
department's domain to authenticate non-generic user accounts. After
successful login against LDAP, the user should be passed to the "button"
which initiates the autologin against the domain.

I've installed the Novell client but after resetting the AdminAutoLogin
parameters and logging out to test, the Novell login apparently sits behind
the Windows Autologin button (or goes away entirely), the result being that
the Novell login screen is never seen.

Is there a way to force the order to: Novell login screen, then Windows
AdminAutoLogin

Thanks in advance!

Try a Novell forum/group - this is an issue with their software.

I found there's a utility called Autolog written by a Novell user that's
available for download from the Novell site. Its interface allows you the
flexibility to choose the order of logins (novell vs. windows), and whether
the logins are manual or auto. Once you configure the settings, you simply
click Enable Autolog and it populates the registry fields accordingly. VERY
slick!

I got it working using Novell Client 4.83 (which the limited documentation
says it supports) as well as 4.91.
