System Variables

Is there a way to pass the "preferred server" setting from the novell client to a system variable?

Re: System Variables

I believe that is a Reg Entry.
You could do a RegRead and then a RegWrite or something like an ENVSET
to make the variable permanent.

Re: System Variables

SETX.EXE or SETENV.EXE are freeware apps that will do this.

or write to

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment

Re: System Variables

Thanks again, but I don't think I am conveying what I am asking properly.

I want to create a ZCM system variable in the ZCC > Configuration > System Variables that will look at or read the Preferred Server or Default Server setting from the workstation, and use it as a variable in a UNC path.
Ex: ${default_server}
Is that possible?

Re: System Variables

Hi
I sort of do it in a two stage process. From the edirectory environment (login script) set a dos environment variable. Run cmd/set from the device to make sure its set. Then from the ZCM device environment suck it up into a ZCM variable. Works most times....

Cheers
