ACU - Auto Update Feature enables Fast User Switching?

Hi Guys,

i am trying to update my novell clients with the acu feature of the novell client itself!
i am planing to deploy: nov client 2 sp3 ir6

i set up acu and everything is working fine... but after the installation of the novell client and a reboot or logout (doesnt matter) my login screen looks like this:

i found this in the official documentation of the novell client: http://www.novell.com/documentation/windows_client/windows_client_admin/data/baccyiv.html#bacczhg

fast user switching becomes available and i dont want to have fast user switching enabled... i only want the novell login box to appear!

i tried to disable fast user switching with gpo: gpedit.msc -> computer configuration -> administrative templates -> system -> logon -> hide entry points for fast user switching! no success!
i also checked the novell client proberties under advanced login and everything is set up as usual... attached you can find my ncpf.txt file!


... is this a new feature or maybe a bug or did i miss something?! any suggestions?!

thx in advance!

So are you saying that user are logged in even after a reboot (as in the picture you posted)?

I "hide entry points for fast user switching" and that setting works for us with NC2SP3IR6 adn WIN7SP1PRO, what version of Windows are you using?

Can you duplicate it with default Novell Client settings?
