Single logon to Windows 7 as Administrator with Novell 6.5 Server RRS feed

  • Single Logon Novell 6.5 Windows 7 work station

    The issue is with Windows 7 single logon (All users log on as Administrator) and Novell 6.5 on a network.

    When you turn on the computer a Novell logon box appears and the user enters their Novell user name and password and press ok it then goes to a windows logon box asking for a user name and password.

    When it was Windows XP Pro I used a reg edit which allowed all user to logon with a single logon to the computer as administrator.

    EG:

    When you turn the computer on a Novell logon box appears once you enter your Novell user name and password it then goes straight into windows (All users log on as Administrator).

    I was after a regedit script for Windows 7 or a solution to do this .

    Thanks

    You just have to configure Windows 7 Autoadmin Logon(i.e. allow use of
    the computer without password - [simply uncheck the "users must enter
    user name and password" box on the User Accounts page and set one user
    as administrator of the computer])  and set the "Prompt for Novell
    login during Windows AutoAdminLogon" setting in the Novell Client to
    "on".

    That should be all needed for this setup.
