Novell Script to join a Windows Domain

I understand you can transparently join a Windows AD domain using a
Novell Login Script. If that is true, how do you do it?

Thanks,

Doug

Er...

There's no magic in the Novell login script processor. It just runs a series of
commands for the user on login. The commands can be internal, or it can run
external programs.

So, if you know how to join a workstation to a domain, and you can do it from
the command line, then you'd just put that same command line in to the users'
login script, and it would run.

As David says, you will need to import your workstation into your AD
first.
