Timeout problem at boot with AD and Novell

Hi everyone,

We have a Active Directory infra and we still have a Novell eDir (we must migrate from Novell to AD).

Users must login first at the Active Directory, and after to Novell client, to get the mappings. The "PassiveModeNDSLoginSilent" novell parameter is used to allow the passing of the AD credentials to Novell client. The problem is that at boot time, the Novell client seems not having enough time to log and do the mappings... often the users just don't have their mappings, and must logoff and relogin the get them mapped.

I search the correct parameters to allow the Novell client to be able to have enough time at boot to login and to do the login script.

thank you for your help !

You could try this one (if not already done so): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/gg486839.aspx

Re: Timeout problem at boot with AD and Novell

and if I activate this features on a laptop and the user go home and try to connect, do the login will take a long time or is there a maximum timeout to wait for servers?

there is nothing to do on the Novell side (the novell client)?

thank you

Get a Device's IP Address.
From another computer, start pinging the 1st Computer.
Power Off and Leave off this computer for about 5 minutes.
Boot it up.
How long after the Logon Screen Appears does it start responding to Pings?

Quite Possible you have a Switch Configuration issue that is causing the
Ports to open very slowly.

On most networks, It will start responding before Windows is even up or
very shortly thereafter.
