Contextless login and changing name low uppercase if found

Hello NG

I have following issue. I work with Windows 7 and the newest NWClient IR9.
ContextLess Login is enabled. Now when I'm just logged in and i choose the
Novell Client i put a name example

I type johnmuel, and the contextless login browse to my tree and if the
client is found it does change the name as it is defined in eDir. The
lowercase letters are changed to low and upper case. Ex: JohnMuel

Now the problem is, when i restart the workstation, the contextless is still
working but the username is not changet to low and uppercase letters. When I
type the username johnmuel, the context is found, the login is possible but
the username was not changed to JohnMuel.

I suppose that here this issue is caused by the windows 7 firewall. Which
port need here to be opened, so that the lower and uppercase changing of the
name is working?

Thank you in advance for your help

Ramon

And does this behaviour give any problems, except of the different look?

Well for the user it was a good sign, that the ldap server was reachable.

Any solutions for this problem?
I'm missing this feature under ZCM11 / W7 too!
In the past (ZDM7 / XP) I told my users to enter their login name in lower case; if switching to upper case everthing was OK, if not, there was a problem (with the login name, server,...)

Kind regards,
Thomas

We had the same in our labs. The possibillity to check user before entering the password is gone. In our case its not a big problem Students simply enter user and password anyway.

The Error Message User not found on ldap... still exists but only after entering complete credentials.

Reason:
Windows 7 changed completely how Authentication is done. There are no longer gina DLLs but Credential Providers.

Under Windows 7 and Novel Client the LDAP lookup is processed only after the user finishes entering credentials.

I dont know wheather ist technically possible to provide the Novell Credential Provider with a pre-login LDAP Search function.

best regards
