Novel Clients for windows

We disabled some of Novell Clients Workstation only login. After we
upgraded the server to Novell 6.0 last weekend users can't login to the
server because of the NMAS Authentication error. We fixed that problem by
login to workstation only and turn the NMAS Authentication off. now the
problem is how can we enable the workstation only login to fix the
problem? As I mentioned we can't login to the server or to the local
computer.

Thanks

Re: Novel Clients for windows

If you've got ZENworks agents enabled on the workstations:
1) push out a registry change (to re-enable Workstation only) using an app object; or
2) push out the NMAS change itself (disabling NMAS - another registry change)

If you don't have ZENworks, but have the Remote Registry and Server services enabled on
the workstations (and not blocked by a firewall):
Net Use \\Workstation /User:DomainOrComputerName\UserAccountWithAdminRights *
RegEdit, connect to remote computer, make the registry change...

If you don't have ZEN, Remote Registry is not available, but you're PCs are in a domain,
push out the change using a Group Policy (a VBScript as a startup script is good).

Last resort:
Press F8 when booting, choose Safe Mode - which will disable the Novell login, login as a
local user, make the registry change, reboot.
