Novell Client 2 Ldap Contextless Login Question

We are testing implementing Contextless login on Windows 7 and during our testing everything works fine on the wire. However when disconnected, mobile users attempt a login it displays the following error before prompting to login to local workstation only;
lgncxw32.exe - "LDAP Contexless Login: No LDAP server specified"

In the previous versions of the Novell Client, it appears you could bypass the error message by adding a registry key to disable error messages;

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Graphical Login\NWLGE\LDAP Contextless]
Novell Client post-4.91 SP4 Login Files 9

Have tested the above setting and it does not appear to work on Windows 7.

Is it possible to suppress this message in Novell Client 2 SP1?

Re: Novell Client 2 Ldap Contextless Login Question

In case anyone runs into this thread looking for same solution. Engineering has had me test a lgncxw32.dll FTF file and we have verified that the registry setting above is now working.

They have told me this change will be implemented into Novell Client 2 SP2 coming later this year.
