On the Novell Login screen v3.20, it does not save the latest name that is typed in.  It always defaults to the name of the person who installed the software.  Is there something I can do or file I can edit to have it save my name when I login?

Well, while I don't advocate mucking around in the registry for the faint of heart, there is a setting in hkey_local_machine\network\logon that can be changed to show the name of the last person who logged onto Novell.  If the Don'tShowLastUser key is set to 1, changing it to 0 should solve your problem.  If you are not comfortable mucking around in the registry, ask your system admin to change it for you.

What is the exact name of the file the setting is in?  I did a "find" and could not locate it.  Can I use notepad or wordpad to edit the file?  If I ask SysAdmin for help on something that isn't a major emergency, they'll have 1000Mhz machines out before I get an answer.

Hey...Bro just a quick one..if you are able to reinstall the Novell 3.20 than please do so cause you have to type the Server Name, Tree Name and the Contex for your LAN or WAN and after you did that it's gonna ask you once for the Username and this is the point where you type inn your Loginn Name and that's it..for the rest...

That would have to be done by SysAdmin. and response time for something like this is non-existant.  If there is nothing that I can modify locally on my machine, I'll have to live with the situation.

Thanks for the help anyway.

Blah to using the Sysadmin.. If you are not subject to policy lockdown on your pc do the following. [Start][Settings][Control Panel][Network].. Double Click Novell Netware Client.. Click the Location Profiles tab on the top row of the window. Click once the  profile of your choice in the Location Profiles box (Usually it will be called Default). Click Properties. Then Click Properties again when your next window appears.. On the Credentials tab of the Novell window that should popup type your username or login id of your choice. Make sure you uncheck the "Save profiles on exit" check box. Then click [OK][OK][OK][OK]. Windows may ask you for you Win CD. If so point it to your Window/System directory it will find all the files it needs there..  I Do this 50 times everyday its easy..
