Delay Novell Client from starting up
Posted on 2009-02-13
I am having a serious issue where I work.
The new HP 6910p, Dell OptiPlex 760 and the other new computers from these mainstream distributors use a new network card, the builtin Intel Gigabit 82567 with minor variations in between.
I've built new images for our automatic installation, but they both fail because they are too fast to boot before the NIC finds the network.
Is there any way I can delay the Novell Client from starting up, or anything from starting selected services/exe's up by lets say 5-10 seconds?
(The problem also affects the Novell ZenWorks 6.5 agent which also fails because of this).
I've heard some rumors of regisry hack's that one can use to delay the startup of the client, which of I'd be very grateful if anyone could assist me with!
