Last Modified: 2012-05-04
We are using Netware 4.11 and I would like to delete a user from a group with a batchfile. This batchfile should be called by the loginscript of the user and the last command should delete his membership of the group.
Is this possible? And how can I do this?

You should download the file ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/novell/n4utl145.zip

In the ZIp file there is a utility called N4attr.exe. You should use it.

This utility can change any NDS property (groupmembership in this case).

Read the readme (or use n4attr /?) and read what is the syntax (username  , operation [add/remove] , property [groupmembership]

The creator address is dcollins@fastlane.net (if you need his help).

The right syntax of N4attr for groupmember ship changing:

N4attr <username> "group membership" + <group name>


N4attr <username> "group membership" - <group name>
