Login-Process of the Novell-Client (Win 7)

Hello,

I think it would be very helpful if we could describe in general here or in some TID what the exact steps are that the novell-client for windows 7 takes - from login to mapping drives.

I have read anything there is, in the documentation, the tids and so forth but I am still confused about how the novell-client for windows 7 finds the DAs, the tree, which roles DNS, SLP, DHCP play in that, when something is broadcasted or multicasted, how entering the DA's IP statically influenses all of this, if the hosts file on windows 7 actually plays any role and so on.

Could someone who has wiresharked the whole process or really understand the details describe step by step what the novell-client is actually doing. I am more interested in the network activity and not so much in processing login scripts.

thx in advance.

Hugo,
You may want to send an email to Novell Technical support to contact the Developer's about what happens in the background when the Novell Client Logs in. Also you can call and speak to the Sales to get them to forward your request to the Developer's.
