windows XP and novell login order

Question: windows XP and novell login order

Hi,

I'm migrating computers to windows XP. We're using a windows 2000 domain controller for security purposes and have mapped drives through novell (I'm a semi-lowly tech so I *think* that's what each are for). Anyway, when setting up computers, a few of them after installing novell client 4.83 with the patch persistently give a windows login first, then the novell login. The majority of the computers do what we'd like, namely a novell login that also logs you into the domain/win2k thingy. Is there any way I can make the few rebellious computers have the novell login appear first and do all the work? I've tried reinstalling novell client and looking through various novell, network, and xp services settings and can't seem to turn anything up. Any comments are appreciated.

Preferred Solution: windows XP and novell login order

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: windows XP and novell login order

It should be right in your network properties where you can change the priority for which client is used first. Set the primary login for the Novelle client.

Ok guys, heres an explanation of what I'd like to do.

We have a bunch of new computers that we've just upgraded to Windows XP. We have novell client version 4.90 with SP1A installed on all the PC's. Each user has a login name and password, and until now what I've been doing is creating a local windows XP account with the same name as their novell login, and then adding them to the administrators group. I sync their passwords, and that way they only have to login to Novell, and it auto-logs into windows.

The problem is that many of our users are moving around from one PC to another, and when they try to login to novell with their novell login/password, windows XP says "Hey, you don't have a local account setup here" and then they either have to login as administrator (Which we don't want) or as the user who own's the machine (Whose password we don't want to give out).

I know theres a way to set it up so that when you login to novell, and theres no local account, it will create a temporary windows login and allow you access to the machine.

Does anyone know how to do this? Can you give that 'temporary' account settings, such as desktop, favorites, color schemes, yada yada?

If you need a better explanation of what I'd like to do, I can try to provide one for you.

Thanks in advance for your help guys

I'm building a windows 2000 image for a public computer lab and we force users to authenticate across our Novell Netware server before they are able to use the system (this is to prevent anonymous abuse).

we have a "student" windows account that will have measures installed to protect the system from tampering, novell is setup to login as the "student" account however it still prompts for a windows user and password before logging in, the second login prompt confuses user "My password isn't working!", "My account is locked out!", if posssible I would like to remove the 2nd prompt and have a silent windows login as the "student" user

I have found some tutorials to this effect but so far I have only managed auto login with no novell authentication

any help would be greatly appreciated

As the title says...I need to map a drive to a Windows 2003 Server (used for a certain app, only to be used by certain people) and we run a Novell network. Is this possible?
 

Answer:Map drive to Windows Server via Novell login sript?

If you have the Novell client on the server, then it shouldn't be a problem. It's been a long time since I've had to deal with a Novell network. (Thank God) IIRC, you should be able to do it as the Novell client uses the Windows API to perform the mapping. Create a test user and modify the script for that user and test it out.

Ok guys, heres kinda a tricky situation, and I'm not even sure IF there is a solution, but I figured if there is one, here is the place to be. I considered posting this in networks, but its more of an OS problem.

We have a novell network here at my job, and we've got an issue with the Windows XP local login. Basically, users have to login to their computers twice. First they login to novell, and then the Windows XP local login pops up, and they have a local account and login with that.

Currently we've been keeping the novell/local passwords the same. This eliminates the second login box, because if the Username and Password is the same on the machine as it is for Novell, it doesn't ask a second time. It just logs in with the sign-on.

The main problem is when users forget their passwords, or change their password for Novell (every 30 days). When they change their passwords, sometimes it automatically changes their local password, othertimes it won't. They'll get the Local Window's login box, and they have to enter their OLD password, and click the "change my password to match novell" checkbox. Easy enough, but these are users after all .

When they forget their passwords, its a whole nother story. We can reset their novell password remotely, but then we usually have to remote control the computer, login as administrator locally, force-change their local passwords, logout and have them login. Then they sc... Read more

Answer:How can I stop windows XP from having a Local Login on Novell Network

I don't think you can stop the XP login. You best bet would be to create a domain and move all the users to it and then remove all of the local logins. That way they login to Novell and the domain and when the passwords are changed it should change on both. If not, you change the password using the windows utilities on the server.

We used to do this and moving to a domain helped tremendously, but you still had some problems with password syncing. On the up side, it is easier to administer in the long run.

Hi there. I work in a corporate environment where we have Novell servers that are being phased out for Active Directory servers. In the past, all the on-site techs were able to access Novell shares by mapping to them via an IP address in a web browser. For example:

\\192.168.1.1\VOL1\Shared

A login box would pop up asking for our credentials. The syntax is:

User ID: userid.context
Password: password

Is it possible to do the same on Active Directory? It doesn't seem to work. I can map to the AD folder in question via Windows Explorer, but not via IP in my browser.

Thanks for any advice or for possibly pointing me in the right direction!
 

Answer:Novell IP Login / Active Directory IP Login Question

It should work, go Start>Run then try \\192.168.1.1\VOL1\Shared there or just try the \\192.168.1.1 for testing and if it works there it'll work in WIndows Explorer and IE, some versions of IE have problems but if its worked in the past it'll work now.

Though if there are any problems post with more details.

Just got a new laptop with windows 10 pre-installed. When I boot up, Windows always tries to use the disabled Administrator user to sign in first, then tells me it is disabled and proceeds to my user, which has admin privileges. I understand how to enable the hidden admin user, but is there any way to re-order the log-in routine so that it will skip trying to use that disabled admin and go straight to mine? It's a minor annoyance but it adds time to the boot-up. Hope this makes sense. Thanks.

I use The Novell Client 4.91 sp2 and when I turn my computer on, I get the novel prompt.
It prompts me for a network user name and passcode, well there is also an entry in the advanced options for a local workstation name.
So you could log into the network under a specific network name and you could also log into the local workstation under a specific name.

Well my problem is, when I enter a network user name it also appears in the local workstation name entry box.

How can I un sync it so that when i put in a network user name it DOESN"T put that same name into the local workstation user

Thanks
 

Answer:Novell Login Prompt Issue.

Im not at my work computer right now so I can't be too detailed. But I think it is in the Novell Client properties under the Advanced Login tab. There should be a place to set which Windows account to log in to - and it should stick.

Not sure if this will even apply to you - but have you considered looking into Novell dynamic profiles which will create a windows user account for anybody that succesfully logs into the network? Just a thought.

I created a DLU policy in zenworks, and assigned it to a group. This allowed anyone to login with their Novell login, and it automatically created a guest account for them in windows. This worked great, except, the next time the regular user loged in it overwrote their admin account, and created a guest account. This now eliminated admin rights, obviously, and wiped out the files in mydocs. OOPS! We have since disabled the DLU policy. Is there a quick, and hopefully easy, way to recover those files.

Two days ago when I would startup my computer (XP Pro) I "was" prompted with the novell login box (4.83 sp1) to enter my password. The username, server, context and tree boxes are already populated and correct.

Okay, now the interesting part. Now when I start my computer I first get the Windows login box with "administrator" in the username box and the password box empty. Now I enter this information, then I get a Novell login Splash screen and then I get a novell login screen with the username set to administrator, the password is blank, the tree and context are correct, but the server box is blank. I have to manually change the username, enter the password (just like always) and enter the correct server info. Another problem that I am sure is connected to this is the fact that when I ctrl + alt + del to "lock the workstation" in the past it would go to the novell "this workstation has been locked and can only be opened by blah blah blah" but now its the windows login and the name administrator is in the username box? what happened and how do I fix it? Thank you for your help and please email me with further questions.

Hi all,

Does the fingerprint reader on the R200 works when you have to logon in a Novell environment? As I read in the manual it seems to work only when just uses Windows. Novell needs always a password before you can login before you can login to Windows. Can you use here the fingerprint instead of the Novell password? As far as I see not.

Thanks for any respons,
Kind regards

Novell Client for Windows v.4.90

A year ago I installed Novell Client software to help run IPX network. All was fine until recently, when I created separate user accounts on my computer, for the first time. Novell disregarded all my new settings except for the one where I turned the original "owner" account into a limited account. Now, I can't log in as anything but a limited user, or a guest. This gives me very limited access to my system and, furthermore, I am totally prevented from changing back the settings from inside WinXP. Novell's software is also totally unco-operative, in my eyes, or, at least, extremely user un-friendly.

Has anyone had to deal with this before? How do you solve it? I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

Hi!

I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

Non-solution:
I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

Solution:

Novell Network s/w ? anyone using it?We have been using Novell network software and GroupWise for email (from Novell) to manage a network with 15 Windows XP pcs for nearly three years now.Novell runs very reliably for us and I don?t think we have ever had much server downtime during those three years. Maybe once or twice a year we might lose access to the server but a quick 10-minute reboot and everything is fine.The reason we went with Novell rather than Microsoft for our network was (1) to try and keep any viruses from spreading, and (2) as it is not ?driver heavy? I would expect it to be more stable (than Microsoft).Our external I.T. consultants tell us that when they install Microsoft SBS it usually runs ok for two to three years and then it starts to have downtime problems on the server. They also said that they do not make much money from their Novell clients because the servers run so well (compared to Microsoft).We will be relocating to a new office soon and we will have to purchase a new server. One of our (potential) major software suppliers presented a pitch to us recently where he really pushed us to go with Microsoft rather than Novell. Admittedly they are a Microsoft partner but the heavy sell really rankled me.Am I the only PC Advisor member who uses Novell?If not, what do other Novell users think of the product?Anyone care to comment on the pros and cons of Microsoft SBS ?v- Novell.

Hello,

My husband uses his Dell laptop both at home and in his office as part of computer networks. His computer is running Windows XP Pro. When he joined his new employer this winter, the IT people changed his login from Win XP to Novell Client. We don't know where they put the Win XP login screen. After he was put on his company's network, he was also placed in a domain in their network. It seemed this caused problems for us.

The first problem was now that he couldn't print on our home network because he was part of this domain. For home use, the IT people told him to go to My Computer, right click, select Properties and select the Computer Name tab. He was told to change the the company domain to our local workgroup on our home network.

I messed up and gave him the default MSHOME and not VictorEnt1, which is our correct home workgroup name. Now my husband can't log into his computer at all!

Our home computers can still recognize shared files on each other, but we don't think we can access My Computer on my husband's laptop to change the workgroup setting to the correct one.

How can we fix this and log into his computer? Can anyone help us here?

Thanks! Your service has been so helpful that we truly appreciate all the help you've ever given us.
 

Answer:Novell and Windows XP -- We can't log onto this computer!!!

I can't believe the company techs told your husband to change from the domain to the workgroup. Your husband will not be able to log into the computer with his domain account credentials. Someone has to log in with a local computer account like the built-in Administrator account. If your husband doesn't know it, the techs will have to fix it.

I have a windows vista64 machine with the new Novell client installed.

How can I have a user log into novell and than automatically log into a default account on windows without having to use a password.

It does exist for windows xp, but the same registry changes do not work with vista anymore.

thanks,

Ron

Hi everybody,

Good day..

Is there any best way to connect Vista Users to Novell 4.1

karthik
 

Answer:Connecting windows Vista With Novell 4.1

hmm; WHY? Novell is old and not current technology; it was primarily used in the
corporate world, not by home users.

Novell uses IPX/SPX protocols which can be added to your NIC card if required.
Your firewall would need rules for the ports shown here

I have an old laptop that was bought from a company that was getting rid of them. However, it was set up to access their network. When it boots up, it looks for some Novell files, that didn't stay resident. I want to eliminate it even looking for these. I looked in several of the files that Windows uses...autoconfig, etc...but I find no reference for these. I figured I can rem out some stuff.
Where might I be able to have windows not look to load these....
Thanks.

Can someone get me some steps on how to install the netbui & ipx/spx portocols on to a windows 2003 server? It's a long story but they are needed to get a current setup to work.

Thanks!
 

Answer:windows 2003 server / novell protocols

Honestly, if you have Novell 4.x or above, installing TCP/IP on that is easier than trying to install IPX/SPX and Netbeui on Win2K3. I don't think Win2K3 even supports Netbeui any more.

I am sure someone has come accross this before. I have a Windows server that runs scheduled backups that dump onto a Novell Server. I access the server using the UNC path and supply a username/pass and save the password in the Windows "Stored user names and passwords." The password manager shows the saved password, however when I log off and back on again and access the share, I am prompted for credentials even though they are saved in the Windows password manager. For this reason scheduled backups fail to run (I reference the UNC path as the backup destination), unless I leave the administrator logged in. Any ideas?

okay, here's my dumb question of the day. i have a XPpro destop, and my friend has a IBM laptop running Windows XP pro as well. (but the laptop uses Novell Netware; when you go into 'my network places' it displays "Novell Connections") >> i know nothing about novell netware << i have a crossover cable, and all i want to do is move files from my comp to his laptop. we're both in the same workgroup, but nothin's showin... what's the deal?!
 

Answer:Dumb question: Novell Netware & Windows?

on the novell ogin screen there should be a check box that says "workstation only" that will allow you to bypass the netwware login and logon to the workstation only. make sure he has tcp/ip setup and file print sharing. novell login should not affect this setup.

Hi I have lenovo T420s Laptop and i installed Windows 7 Pro sp1 x64 with Novell Client 2 SP2 for Windows when i use fingerprint to login then it works but without novell. Thanks in Adavnce,Adam

Answer:FingerPrint Issue with Windows 7 Pro sp1 x64 with Novell Client 2 SP2

I'm not sure how it is with Novell, but to make fingerprint working with Windows domain, you need to enable it first via Control Panel / Biometric Settings (or similar name, I don't have EN windows). When you run this applet, look on the left, last item from bottom should be responsible to allowing network login via fingerprint.Hopefully this helps.Chris

Answer:Need help with accessing windows and removing novell client

Try logging on the computer in safemode. See if you can get on without the log on. Otherwise novell is a nework program and you have to be conected to that network to log on.

Last week my Windows XP machine ran perfectly fine with Eclipse allowing me to crank out code pretty quickly. It was fun. Something weird happened at the start of Monday that changed all that. We believe it has something to do with the network but the problem is still not resolved.

What happens is that I am using Eclipse and the application will seem to "freeze" for about 30 - 60 seconds periodically. Operations like just switching windows or saving files that used to take only a moment or two now taking about 30 seconds to execute. Further, 1/2 the time I try to run Java programs in the IDE, the pausing will happen. Its the strangest thing.

I'd like to know if anyone here has had such an experience and did you figure out what was causing the problem. I had the opportunity to use a computer that was freshly installed with Windows XP and only had McAfee running on it and still the problem persisted. In fact, it was worse....

If anybody can provide any suggestions as to what the problem may be, your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,

We currently have a novell 3.12 server.. Yeah, it's old. We're phasing it out soon. Aside from a database server (which we've almost finished migrating to windows 2003) the novell server acted as a file server. There were 2 drives that the novell server mounts when you login. The F:\ drive is a public drive. We've replaced that with a snap server, and have set user permissions accordingly, and a simple login script can redirect where F: points, so there won't be any problems.

The real problem is the I:\ drive. The I:\ drive is different for each user. Only the user (and admin) have access to their I:\ drive. Currently on the novell server, when you create a new user, it creates a folder of the same name on the DATA volume, and assigns the proper permissions.

so we have a data structure that looks like this:
\NOVELL_SERVER\DATA\SRI\USERNAME
we have about 100 users.

Copying the SRI folder, which has all the I:\ drive data for all users, is not a problem. My question is how on earth would you go about recreating the proper shares, and network drive maps for this?

One problem I've noticed with windows 98 is say you create a share called SRI that points to the SRI folder on the new 2003 server. You can't map \\2003SERVER\SRI\USERNAME as a drive because the USERNAME is not a share, only SRI, the directory above it, is.

Windows XP seems to not care if you mount a sub-directory of a share as a drive.

The other part of my problem is, is there a... Read more

Answer:Moving user's personal drives off Novell 3.12 and onto a Windows NT4 and 2003 domain

If I'm understanding you correctly, you just need to setup a personal drive for everyone. It's a bit of work, since you will need to create all the subdirectories, then share each one to the user and admin group. As far as scripting it, I'm sure there must be something out there to do it, I've just never seen anything on that before.

Hi,

I have never used Novel before but I need to figure this problem out.

I need figure out how to connect Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 to Novell Netware 6.5. The shares will come from Windows but how do I manage the security and login scripts for this from Novell Directory Services? I was thinking DIR XML possibly? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
 

Answer:how to connect Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003 to Novell Netware 6.5

The question is pretty lite on details and I have never tried to integrate a windows server into a Novell envrionment, but I'll reply anyway.

The two things that come to mind I would look at would be installing eDirectory on the Windows box or using DirXML to sync accounts between NDS and AD. Of course I'm making all sorts of assumptions, but my thinking is that the first option may allow the management of the servers resources directly through eDir (I've never installed eDir on Windows, so I really dont know how it behaves). The DirXML idea would let you sync accounts and then manage the windows shares as you normally would.

Are you trying to get interoperability between two existing systems or is this windows box a new addition to an existing Novell environment?

Well guys, I've got a wierd one here. Several of my users (Win XP, SP1) have persistent windows drive mappings going to other windows (2000 server) machines. However, whenever they change their novell (4.9) passwords, the drive maps have a red X on them. If they try to go to that drive, it tells them access denied, and doesn't even ask for a username/password. You have to unmap, then remap the drive.

Any ideas?

Also -Changing the Novell passwords also makes them change their windows password. But they are mapped to the Windows 2000 servers with a completely unrelated username/password. Which is set to be remembered.
 

Answer:Changing novell password causes Windows to lose connection to drive shares

huh? so you saying that the other mappings are mapped based off "rememberd" username and passwords to other w2k servers that is diffrent from their novell logins? If so it make sense that it would challege you if you orgional creditals changed. Alse if so this seems like a very poor way to manage network resources. you running AD?

Hi,I've an approved RMA for full refund for an X230 that I'd purchased from Depot. The restocking fee was waived as I'd ordered another X230 (better EPP deal).I shipped back the unopened X230 and Lenovo acknowledged the receipt of the laptop on Feb 5. And since then there has been no update on my refund. I was told it would take 6 business days for the refund to be posted back to my account.Now it's over 2 weeks and when I contacted post sales support - this is the reply I got from them: *************Hi,We regret to inform you that i am unable to get any information on this order, I am still working on your order.

An answer like "i am unable to get any information on this order" from customer care themselves doesn't really inspire confidence with Lenovo. The second X230 that I'd ordered, has issues with the IPS display having a yellow tint and the touchpad being super jumpy. Had sent it to their repair center who unfortunately were not able to see the problems at first but later accepted the problem with the touchpad alone and they're getting the laptop re-imaged.

Generally when that happens there has been a burst of orders, or there is a part on back order and the sales site hasn't been updated yet.  The delivery times are just estimates and could be sooner or later depending on various conditions.

Hi, my windows was set up like this:
C: windows 7
F: all user accounts inluding default user ( users folder ) are on F drive.
I imaged windows, and restored it on a different PC.
On another HDD, I assigned it as F: and put a copy of the user folders on there.

But now when it goes to log in, a profile unable to login service error comes up...!!

Is it have to do with the F drive?

Is there something other than just the Drive letter, that windows looks for when searching for the users folder to login? Like HDD id/serials or something like that?

How can I fix this, it driving me crazy for too long!!
Thanks!!!!

Answer:!! Restored image of windows, now wont login, login service error!!

OK, its definitely because windows cant assign the HDD as F: because it hasn't recognized it before.

So, then, is there any way to add the HDD ID and assigned letter, to the windows registry BEFORE restoring the image ( ie before imaging)??

Hi ! Did you create a system repair CD or a system recovery drive?? Here are the ways that you can recover. My first choice would be to restore to a time before the update with a restore point! Read this by HTG! How to Create and Use a Recovery Drive or System Repair Disc in Windows 8 or 10 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...covery-options
PS! Using a Recovery Drive or System Repair Disc
A recovery drive will normally not be necessary. If your computer fails to boot several times, Windows 8 or 10 will automatically bring up the advanced startup options, which allows you to troubleshoot and fix it.
If Windows can?t even bring up these tools, you?ll need the recovery drive, system repair disc, or a Windows 8 or 10 installation disc. Insert the recovery media into your computer and restart. Your computer should boot from the recovery media automatically. (If it doesn?t, you may need to change its boot order.)

This is quite a confusing story, and the cause for it simply eludes me, but this will be the second time it has happened.

Basically, I was on Youtube through Google Chrome. Shockwave Flash crashed on me (and it is well known that Flash will often crash on Chrome), and when Chrome said I should end the process, I did. To attempt to restart Flash, I exited Chrome and clicked on it again to reopen it. It failed to come up. And so begins my real problem.

I try to open Task Manager through CTRL + Shift + ESC; fails to come up. I try CTRL + ALT + DEL as well; fails to come up. The computer begins to lag like crazy. I can't click on anything without having to wait for at least 5 minutes. I did try patience though, and the menus eventually came up, but still, movement was futile. My plan was to go in and hopefully find the process that was potentially lagging my pc. The strangest thing was that the CPU Usage was fine and barely went above 10-11%, and the Physical Memory was at 21%. So what could be affecting it and making it so slow if the processes are fine?

I then decided to restart my computer. It loaded the windows loading screen fine, but that first time the windows login screen took nearly 10 minutes to come up. When it finally did, I tried to login, it would take me to a black screen with just the mouse pointer in the dead center and nothing else within sight. The mouse was moveable, but there was nothing to click on.

Hi, I'm new here. I created this account for help because my mother's password seems changed and she couldn't login, the keyboard wasn't sticky so she didn't mistype, caps lock wasn't on. I typed it my self and it didn't work, restarted the computer and it didn't work neither. I then go to thinking it was hacked and the password was simply changed. I go looking around for password changing boots for my flashdrive. I burned PASSCAPE on to my 16gig 2-1 flashdrive. Tried booting on all settings, booted normally, didn't work. So, I ignored it for a while and kept clicking "Reset password" button, It showed up as "Passcape" but claimed the usb slot was empy, wasn't; the slot is "F".

Hello all.
We have Windows Server2003 on servers, windows xp on clients, protected by a watchguard firebox x550. VPN users authenticate to Firebox, not AD.
I am trying to setup pptp-vpn on a new laptop, which has Windows 7 Pro. Here is what happens.
I go outside the office, login to Windows laptop with the domain username and password. Then I fire up PPTP-VPN, login with the vpn username/password (leaving domain blank).

VPN Login goes through fine, I can see and ping servers by name and by IP. However, when I try to browse to the network drives, it says username not found.

I tried logging in with a different VPN/username, still the same thing. Not only that, but since that vpn/username matched a username on the domain, it actually locked that domain (not VPN) username out after a few clicks (group policy for domain users is set
to 3 times the wrong password locks the account).
So somehow, when I connect via PPTP-VPN on a Windows 7
laptop, the PPTP login overwrites the windows login. PPTP connection is setup with domain blank, and the box "Use windows domain/login" unchecked.

The same PPTP-VPN, on a Windows XP laptop works fine, does not have that issue.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Windows loads okay, upto the point when i get to the welcome screen.

Sometimes it gets to the welcome screen, but the user profile icons will never show but then sometimes the icons will show, but when i click on the icon, i can't get to the bit where i can type a password.

If i reboot into safemode, then i can perfectly access everything as normal.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks!

Friend of family had a stroke, can't remember user password. It happens. I'm an old ex network admin, so pretty savy here yet Totally stumped, short of spending money to buy something. Here is what I've tried to do to get to the command prompt, so I can run net user to enable the administrator login, which is defaulted as disabled on 7. Of course she never made up any backup image disks or anything, duh.......who does?

1. On boot up, pressed F8 to get to command prompt with safe mode. That works, when selected option given here, still boots up to the user name login. So I can't get to the command prompt. Tried the other safe mode options, with same result. Toshiba also has a F12 boot option, same result.

2. Started windows, when it was loading, I shut it down with Power On button, restarted, repair mode to get to command prompt, cancelling the repair when it starts, but can't get to command prompt this way either.

3. Tried my Windows 7 disk, but still loads and comes up to user login, so I can't enable the administrator option.

4. I think she has this locked down pretty good, nothing in the BIOS to secure the user access.

I have a bootable Flash drive, but it will not work on this Toshiba Satelite laptop, will not boot as there is no option in BIOS to enable it. I tried with a bootable CD disk, and it boots up, but I still go to the user login like above.

Would like to help her out, I doubt she'll be working again, and is only in her late 50's. Doing t... Read more

Welcome CJGCJG to the windows 7 forums.

Remote Desktop Program is as it says a program on your computer that will allow you full screen remote to another system that authorizes you. There is a way to automatically bring the RDP program up for you to log into another system but it requires that your primary windows system (the one your want to connect from) be set up to automatically boot into you Operating system, putting the RDP program in your startup fold will bring it up.
Using netplwiz, you can set your userid to automatically log in to your local machine and then the RDP would run and you can then log onto your remote system. In fact y ou can save all the credentials for your RDP session and it will automatically login to your remote system.

Is this clear?

I'm using Windows 7 Pro. I have remove the login pw in my user account now I do not need to do the login and able to use the computer right away. But I found I am using the computer as a user not administrator. How can I skip the login screen and go straight into desktop as administrator. How can I do that? thanks

Answer:Windows 7 Pro login as admin but no need to have login screen

Hello Smash, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm a bit confused with your conflicting statements.

You say that "...now I do not need to do the login and able to use the computer right away.", but then ask "How can I skip the login screen and go straight into desktop..."?

Just to be certain, do you have to log on or not?Log On Automatically at Startup
Are you asking how to log on to the built-in Administrator account to have full access and control?

Hope this may help for now,
Shawn

I have viewed this site for a long time, but this is the first time I needed to post a problem. I do not know if my problem belongs in the OS forum or the Networking forum but hear it is!

I am setting up a new Dell PC with Windows XP Home Edition with 256 megs of memory. I need to manually log onto a Novell network and automatically logon to Windows XP Home Edition. In other words, I do not want the windows logon screen to appear after I log onto Novell.

I have tried Microsoft's article Q315231 "How to Enable Automatic Logon in Windows". The auto logon to windows works, however, it seems to disable the Novell logon screen. When I boot up the pc no logon window appears (Novell or otherwise). I can however, manually log into Novell after XP is loaded.

I need to allow different Novell users to log in to one Windows XP profile. Is this possible? My network admin and I have not been able to figure this out.

I will not be able to test any suggestions until Monday, but I can supply additional information to any post this weekend.

Thank you in advance for everyone's efforts.

How can I make the old Win2000 login screen apear as default (the screen you get by pressing ctrl+alt+delete twice). Is there a way? I know many corporations, and offices do the login like that, but I don't know how, could someone explain (I'm on windows XP pro).
 

Answer:Windows XP Pro login like Win2000 login?

One of two ways:

1) Join a domain
2) Go to Control Panel, to Users, to Change The Way Users Log On, and uncheck Use Welcome Screen.

Hello everyone

I've navigated almost the whole internet to find a solution to this problem, but I found none

The PC starts up fine like usual untill the windows 7 login screen, once in there, there is no login box. The image of my User session is missing, aswell as the line where im supposed to type in my password, Its just the plain blueish windows 7 screen.
-
Image - TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting - thats a picture of how it looks like. (It is not mine though)

Also note, the screen flickers every a couple seconds and the mouse pointer works fine

I have tried turning off the PC for a while and trying again later, i also tried restarting it several times and safe mode aswell but they all lead to the same problem. I also dont have a repair disk

I am quite desperate to use my PC again, its been like that for almost a week now and the tech guy isnt coming untill wednesday. I would really like to know if its an error i can fix myself maybe through the bios or something or if its well beyond that and I might need a windows or maybe even hardware replacement.

Thanks all!

For the past 3 days I haven't been able to log in to my 7 year old compaq laptop after trying to restore/recover my iTunes which completely lost all its contents last Sunday. Recovery failed but windows did an update (which it hasn't done for ages). I have never experienced problems with this laptop. The keys and mousr are unresponsive on the windows login page but fine otherwise (I tried some tune up & problem solving using the F function keys). I really don't want to restore to factory settings box fresh that would be disastrous! Please help me

I've upgraded my T440 to Windows 10 and the latest mousepad driver seems to be giving me issues. With the Synaptics driver 19.0.17.27 installed, trying to select a new window to make it top most will often fails. That window will hide behind other windows. If I try to uninstall the Synaptics driver once, the window z-order issue will be fixed, but the driver is like half uninstalled and most mousepad function will no longer work (2 finger stroll, right click, button press)  The input cursor will also jump around too while I tried to type. Is Lenovo aware of this issue? I think I've seen another person in another forum mention this.  This is becoming quite frustrating for me.

Alt + Tab order runs in order of most recently used (MRU) to least recent.  I want to change this order to a static order that I opened each program.
Example:  I open program 1, 2, 3, 4.  If I'm on window #1, I alt+tab, I go to window #2, I alt+tab again I go to window #1, I alt+tab, again I go to window #2.  From what I read this is called most recently used (MRU) order.
I would like to start on window #1, alt+tab, go to window #2, alt+tab, go to window #3, alt+tab, go to window #4.  I have no idea what this is called and thus searching for an answer is hard.

Please and thank you.
Also hotkeys/macros might be a work around but I don't know how to set that up and the total number of open windows is variable...

We have until July 11 or so to pre-order Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional for about 1/2 price ($50 and $99 respectively). Which version would you put on your s10?When I look at the feature comparisons it looks like Windows XP mode probably is the only thing I'd use from Professional that Home Premium doesn't have. Or is there other stuff in Professional that they aren't mentioning?ggeinecMessage Edited by ggeinec on 06-28-2009 12:21 PM

Answer:Windows 7 pre-order

As far as I know the Windows XP mode (Windows Virtual PC) requires the virtualization technology Intel VT or AMD-V. The N270 does not support this feature and therefore it should not work on the S10. The Professional Edition also features the offline files for network shares, for my opinion a necessary function for mobile devices. Anyone else?  Greetings Carsten

Dear MS support, 
I have the following situation and really appreciate if you can provide any guidelines. I'm working on a windows machine with two adapters. Will try to summarize it here :
1- NIC#1 has ipv4 only enabled and it has one dns server. Plus a default domain name of test.com.
2- NIC#2 has both ipv4 and ipv6 enabled. Plus a default domain name of test.com. [there are a valid ipv6 dns server too].
3- All the interfaces has the following dns suffixes enabled :
hyari1.com
hyari2.com

Problem
=====

When i try to resolve a name without a domain. I get the following behavior :
1- First i see an ipv4 dns query on NIC#1 to the name appended with the domain test.com and i get no such name for that one which is expected.
2- Instead of trying the next dns suffixes on that interface i see that the dns resolver jumps to the ipv6 dns server on NIC#2 . And here is my Problem, why it didn't continue to resolve all the suffixes on NIC#1 .

Please notice that in the binding order. NIC#1 appears before NIC#2.  

is this expected and why ?

Moh.

Hi,Replacing the memory will not help. As for the first question, try this search on Google:http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navc...ll+login+bypassIt looks like other people have the same problem. It seems that you have to wipe out the hard drive and reinstall Windows.You could also try to reset the password.

Question: Novell Vs Nt

I AM GOING TO BE INSTALLING A NETWORK IN OUR LOCAL HOSPITAL. MOST OF THE COMPUTERS HAVE WINDOWS 2000 ON THEM. WHEN I INSTALL THE SERVER WHICH NETWORK OS SHOULD I USE - SECURITY IS VERY IMPORTANT. WE WILL USE IT FOR AN EMAIL SERVER ALSO. IT WILL BE CONNECTED WITH A T1 LINE. SHOULD I USE EXHANGE FOR THE EMAIL PROGRAM
 

Answer:Novell Vs Nt

I dont know if there are many Novell folks around to speak for it, I havent been around it in years so my opinion wouldnt count anyway. I have used NT and Exchange for quite awhile (since NT 3.51) and find it secure and relatively easy to use. If you have 2k workstations now you are halfway there.
A benefit to Exchange Server is that it supports POP3 and HTTP mail out of the box so your users can access mail from anywhere on the internet.
Maybe someone familiar with the newer versions of Netware will join in.

I do computer work for a major company in Rhode Island. Thursday they got hit my lightning and it wiped out out alot of equipment..including there Novell Server.

The company that maintained their server is out of buisness. Being that I had takin a few corses in Novell I'd said I'd take a look. Turns out they rarely backup'd their data and one of the managers after the lightning damage started running all kinds of commands on the server.

Context = HK

What it looks like to me is the NDS is corrupt. Everyone can login yet nobody has search mappings or server access. At the console I've tried running DSREPAIR but get stopped by eroors -622 and -626("Object not found").

I can login as the Administrator from the client login but when I try to login at the server console itself I get denied. There bach-up tapes are only 4MB big.
