This document will help you in Configuring the Novell Client for Windows 7 / Windows 2008 Server to authenticate against DSFW or Microsoft AD.
By default the Novell Client for Windows 7 is configured as primary network provider and a Novell OES2 DSfW server has both the NCP and SMB protocol stacks configured. In order to be able to use both the Novell Client and Microsoft Windows Network client on a Microsoft Windows 7 workstation, the network provider order has to be modified. This article has the steps to configure the Novell Client as secondary network provider on a Windows 7 Workstation so the workstation can authenticate to a DSfW domain as well.
Novell Client as secondary network provider on a Windows 7 Workstation is supported in an environment with Novell’s Domain Services for Windows (DSfW) in Open Enterprise Server 2 and with Microsoft's AD.
