Problems with Novell Client and Windows Server 2008 TS

I have been having trouble with getting the Novell Client to work properly with a Windows Sever 2008 64-bit Terminal Server. Once I install the Novell Client on the machine I get really slow logins, it can take a half an hour at least to login into the server. I am not even logging into Novell at this point, just a AD domain admin user. While it is trying to login all I get is a blank blue background.

I have installed the latest Novell Vista/2008 Client and still have the same problem. From what I can tell gpscript.exe looks to be locking it up. Once I get that app kill off the login finishes.

Anyone else experiencing any issues with the latest Novell Client? I am not sure if it makes any difference that I am running Terminal Services on the box.

Thanks for any help.

Can't say I've encountered that on any of the Windows Server 2008
machines I've run, although not all of them were domain members.

If that were happening in front of me I would probably be trying to
determine if there was a specific group policy setting that was
involved in encountering this; not to say that's the cause of the
problem, but just to know what the factors are in how the problem is
occurring.

Since you mention its happening even without logging into eDirectory,
one additional test that comes to mind is to change the network
provider order that Windows is using to put the "Microsoft Windows
Network" ahead of the "NetWare Services" network provider.

(Right-click on the "Network" icon, select "Properties", find the
"manage network connections" link which will show you the network
adapters list, press the ALT key to reveal the menu in this window,
select "Advanced" and then "Advanced Settings..." and then switch to
the "Provider Order" tab. From there you can re-order the providers.)

Re: Problems with Novell Client and Windows Server 2008 TS

Thanks, but it does not work.

The same trouble continues.

When you try to connect to a Windows Server 2008 from Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, using \\server2008, it takes 60 sec. aprox. The second time is fast but if you wait 5, 10 min. the trouble appears again.

If you do that from Vista or other Windows Server 2008 with the novell client installed, it takes 1 or 2 sec. that is normal.

If you uninstall the Novell client of XP or 2003, you can access the \\server2008 very fast, like normal every time.

Thanks if you can help

Atte.,
