Vista client passive mode

Hello,
I'm trying to use a feature I found in the XP client called "Passive Mode",
when I set the registry entries as stated http://www.novell.com/documentation/ias/index.html?page=/documentation/ias/nescm_install/data/b7tfvt6.html
nothing happens.

Does anyone know if it is available on Vista client ?

Or is there an other way to keep the Client installed and login only to Windows
?

Thanks

Patrick

Setting "Novell Logon" to "Off" in the "Advanced Login" tab of the
Novell Client Properties should turn off the Novell Client's
credential provider for Windows Vista and leave you with the Windows
standard credential provider.

Thanks it's working.

Any idea what registry key is related to "Novell Logon" ?

Apparently its the "Enabled" value in the registry under
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Authentication\NCCredProvider].

Re: Vista client passive mode

Upon return from this mode the computer login is set as default. Anyway
to make the Novell Logon default.

So far as I know, even when the Novell credential provider is being
used, its simply defaulting to the last kind of login that occurred,
which I suppose fits with why it was default to the Windows-only mode
once you re-enabled "Novell Logon".

You could perhaps try setting "Computer Only Logon" to "Off" from the
"Advanced Login" tab of the Novell Client Properties. But this is
simply preventing the Windows-only login mode from being offered by
the Novell credential provider under any circumstance; not
specifically when switching "Novell Logon" back to "On".

Unfortunately I still need to have a computer login available to users.
My aim is to make this computer login something users need to select,
leaving the novell login as default.

The novell login must be the default login screen at all times.

It seems to be some history settings from the last login.

If anyone knows how to default the novell login then I'd be pleased and
greatful.

Is this still working the same with the latest client (Novell Client 2 SP1)?
Or is there a new setting?
We would like the "Novell Logon" to always be the default.

No, not here. It will default to last kind of login that occurred.
I'm looking for a setting to always force "Novell Logon".

Re: Vista client passive mode

I think I found it, will test on Monday:

http://www.novell.com/documentation/vista_client/vista_client_admin/data/a3llvcg.html
"4.2.3 Advanced Login Settings"
"Computer Only Logon Default:
Determines whether the Novell Client will default to the Computer Only Logon
mode. Automatic means the Novell Client will remember when Computer Only
Logon was the mode previously selected, and will continue defaulting to
Computer Only Logon until Novell Logon mode is interactively selected again.
Always means the Computer Only Logon will always be the default mode
presented, even if Novell Logon was the previous mode used. Never means that
Novell Logon will always be the default mode presented, even if Computer
Only Logon was the previous mode used."
