I am trying to figure out a way to delay the Novell log-in prompt from appearing for 15 – 20 seconds. This 15 – 20 second time period would allow for the built-in wireless on this HP Mini 5101 to authenticate to the network. After authentication the user would be able to successfully login and not receive an error message because they logged into too quickly, not allowing the authentication handshake to take place.
Students and staff turn on the computer and log in as soon as they see the prompt. They are quickly greeted with an LDAP Error message. If the student or staff member tries again in most cases the required time has gone by to allow the handshake and they can successfully login the second time.
Staff Development, the staff have accepted this but from time to time do forget, students however are not being trained or taught by the staff so they are not learning to be patient after turning on a computer.
(I have the script running but the Novell log-in window appears, is there a way to stop the Novell log-in window from appearing until after the script has completed?)
(This article did not apply to the issue, just delayed Windows from loading)
(The Novell log-in window still appears before the script starts)
(did not seem to change the speed of the Novell log-in window from appearing)
Ping 127.0.0.1 –n 60
WScript.Echo “Hello World!”
WScript.Echo “I slept for 15 seconds!”
All of the code launches but it launches after the login script. Thus far the only window I have been able to get to appear infront of the Novell log-in window is the Legal Disclaimer, I am trying to figure out of a way to keep that up for 15 seconds before the students can click the OK button.
Any suggestions are welcome, just trying to figure out how to delay that log in prompt from appearing before the authentication handshake takes place.
