SLP ? Novell Client ? Unlocking takes 2 times?

I have ran into issues with Unlocking workstations or setting a computer to power on at 7:00 AM at sites B
  • Ignoring the SLP question since I'm more interested in the login problem...

    Get the LAN trace taken showing what is happening on the client. The best
    way to get this may be to mirror a port on the switch and then capture all
    of the traffic there, though you could also potentially setup a LAN trace
    on the offending workstation(s) as well. Without this we can still have
    an interesting discussion on SLP, but is there any evidence pointing to
    SLP at this point? If the issue is intermittent is there any correlation
    with times when the users of the computers are doing password changes
    (login, password prompt shows up, user changes password, time passes, user
    locks computer, user tries to unlock but gets a failure, tries again and
    it works)?

    Good luck.

  • We have overcome this issue by going into the Novell Client properties on each workstation. We create a new "system login profile".

    The login profile properties in the edirectory tab are Tree = ip address of the tree, context = name of the server, server = same ip address as the tree.

    We name and save the profile, delete the default profile. After the first login when you select the newly created profile, subsequent logins don't have this issue.
