We have just added our first Windows 7 workstation to our small office network (all the others are XP - we skipped Vista).
I downloaded and installed the Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows 7, but found that it's not mapping network drives specified in the Login script when logging in. I've looked for the problem on various forums including this one, and have tried the following suggestions - all without success:
1) uninstalling the client and replacing it with the Client 2 for Vista / 2008
2) turning off UAC in Windows (by moving the slider bar down to the bottom - I don't know if there's any further step that can be taken to completely disable it). Most forum posts I've seen claim that this usually resolves the issue, but it hasn't for me.
3) turning off the prompt for a Windows ID and password using Control Userpasswords2
4) loading Windows, then logging in from the red N icon in the System Tray - this works sometimes, especially if I leave the workstation for 5-10 minutes after loading Windows, but more often than not it doesn't.
I do find it remarkable that, more than 6 months after the release of Windows 7, Novell appear still not to have a functional compatible client for it!
Can anyone suggest what else I can try to get this client to work properly? I don't mind if it's set to login to Novell as Windows loads (as is the default) or if it has to be after Windows has fully loaded, so long as it works consistently.
