Vista 1.0 Client login issues

I got some login issues with the Novell Client for Vista.

When I boot the pc, and try to login to my eDir I get "Tree xxxx could not be found".

When I reenter the password, I can login with no problems at all.

Im aware that I could just enter the IP address a server in my eDir, but I doubt thats the meaning.

It might be me that havent made any configurations changes to client that needs to be set.

Anyone got a solution or advice?

Re: Vista 1.0 Client login issues

Jesper, some others have reported something similar to this -- can you
get a trace so we can see what's going on during the log in process?

Re: Vista 1.0 Client login issues

I've been having the same login problems as mentioned. The login works on
the second try but never the first. Also, now I cannot save files to our
Novell network(6.5). Any word or excell file saves to the network drives
but is corrupted (file size for word docs - 10kb and excell 32,999kb)
Through XP and the lastest client - no problem. In fact no problem with
the first Vista Client.
Any ideas?

What kind of trace?

This problem occurs before I login to the Workstation so cant start any programs.

It doesnt matter if I login to the workstation first and use the red N in the systray.

I've run a packet trace using ethereal and winPcap.

I get loads of "TCP_CHECKSUM_INCORRECT".

I tried to disable IPv6, QOS and all other services/protocols BUT the novell client, MS Client and IPv4

Can this be an SLP issue?

I have not worried about SLP in ages, and my SLP setup is based on default setting, and prolly dont have any proper SLPDA running.

SLP seemed to be the issue here.

On the server controlling the Master Replica of my eDir I ran SLPDA /A and rebooted the vista pc.

As of now, I can login successfull from the Windows Vista Logon screen.

Re: Svar: Re: Vista 1.0 Client login issues

It could be an SLP timing issue --

A relatively simple test to see if this is basically a name resolution
issue would be to try the login using the IP address of a server for
both tree and server name. You might also try putting a HOSTS file
entry in for the server name. If those logins work right off, then you
might spend time looking into SLP issues.

Re: Svar: Re: Vista 1.0 Client login issues

I could login using IP address on tree name.

I did a SLPDA /A on one of my servers (the one with master replica) and rebooted the vista pc.

I can now login with no problems at all.

Thanks for all responses

OK -- so that sounds like a fix in your situation.

My sense is that part of the issue is Vista expecting to find
information in the log in which is there yet, (that is, it is 'asking
the question too early'), so there needs to be a tweak in the client
which will have Vista demonstrate some patience during the log in phase.

Re: Svar: Re: Vista 1.0 Client login issues

I was also continuing to get multiple errors/requests for login during a
bootup when I left out the server name and only entered the tree and
container. After also entering a server name, it booted fine on first try.
With XP, I could leave out the server name and only enter tree/container.

That is consistent with what I've seen.

I saw Jesper's post regarding the SLPDA /A, and tried it. It worked,
and I can now login on first attempt using the name for Tree and server
instead of the ip address. Barbara
