Hi!
I work for a shcool district and we need the students to login with the Novell login. After that, however, we do not want to be promopted for the Windows Workstation login.
We are running Novell 4.83 and so far, I think it's impossible, any suggestions?

Just remove the WIndows client in the Networking properties, and leave the Novell client there.

I hope this helps !

Thanks for the reply, but it didn't work... There is no Windows Client int he Networking properties. We have tried everything from changing the registry to completely starting over.
A lot of people I have seen on other boards have this problem too.

On NT, you can do the following.

Install the latest version v1.33 of TweakUi from Microsoft
                    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsme/guide/tweakui.exe
See tweakui in the control panel .

Check the Login Tab.
You can set it for automatic login.

I hope this helps !

don't go there, you really don't want to be messing with that sort of things...

you will need to setup roaming profiles for your users using novell policies via the netware administrator.

(there is also an easier way if you use novell account management software, but don't know if you are allowed to buy software)

In addition, with Novell Account Management you can manage user accounts, passwords and authentication for all of your server platforms, from a single point of administration. You will spend less time and money managing user accounts because changes you make to account information are distributed to every server on your network—instantaneously. For example, if you want to create a user account and enable access to resources on multiple operating systems, you simply configure and activate the user's account. And, with Novell Account Management, you only activate the account once because Novell Account Management updates all of your network's servers with the new account information

I trust you are using zenworks for your workstations together with the Nal?

and you probably don't want them to logon locally as administrator?
and you've got a lot of people logging on to different pc's?

I'll have a look if you have more info.
which version of netware are you using and are you the novell administrator?
