Is there an easy way to have users without a domain account login with only Novell access and not have to change the workstation/domain settings?
example:
joe has a novell account and a domain account.
when joe logs in he needs only to enter his password and then change the windows login info to his.

jane has only a novell account
jane enters her info for the novell login but can't enter any info when prompted for the windows info.
therefore jane can't login to this system with out setting up a local account. Admin(me) says noway no local account on machines.

How can jane login without a domain account?

you need a local or domain-user to logon to the Workstation. But its possible to logon to the novell-server with an other user as to the Windows-Workstation
for example:
if the (local) Guest-account is not deactivated, you could logon to novell as jane and to the windows-workstation as guest.

That's what I thought. Is there anyway to get the login to not prompt for the windows side? Like make guest or someother account the perm default, and not ask for a password?

i am not sure, but i think it works, if the windows-account have no password (or the same password as the novell-account)

but no password is not really a good solution ...

Hello,
To make an account a default one to login to a windows workstation you could use an auto login.
This link describes how to do an auto login for your situation.

Note## This is called an auto-admin login.
This does not have to be the case.
You can replace the username 'administrator' with any username...local or domain.

There are many scenarios posted in this link which is why I could not simply post
the relevant one.

Also, the password for this default windows user is stored in the registry in clear text.

Good Luck

I'll look into that this week to see if it will work for me.
