We are running client 4.83sp2 on our winXP pro workstations. Lately,
pc's have started acting diffirent to the norm. out of about 250 
workstations, with about 4000 students going thru them in a day, some
have started rejecting logins. Not specific machines or specific
but at random. The client login will accept their username and
password as 
valid, and disappear like for a normal login, but a few seconds later
login prompt re-appears and the user is requested to log in again.
then keeps happening with the result that the user cannot log in on
machine. In some cases this user can log in to another pc elsewhere,
others not. Very confusing and hard to try and track down. We dont get
reports firsthand, this gets reported via two levels of inbetween
and we cannot duplicate the occurances in our testlab.

Can anyone suggest where to look, or a fix?

We are using NDPS printing for the student labs, but we have been
this for quite a while, and the problem only started occurring in the
2 months. The printers are not hp, but the printservers are.

The login prompt doesnt show SYSTEM, it reverts back to the previous 
person who logged into that particular workstation, in most cases THAT

person could log in on the workstation.

Could the probelm lie in an associated policy, or possibly the

Basically it would prompt if, for whatever reason, the system was
trying to
access some resource that the currently logged in user doesn't have
access/rights to.

Does it make any reference to Bindery?  If so, its possible NDS
authentication if failing and its trying other methods.

Its the initial login screen he's getting. System starts logging in,
then goes
back to initial login screen.

Seem to recall this was fixed in one of the post SP2 patches - I'd
installing 483psp2e.exe

Have you got Workstation Manager installed (Zen 3.2)?

Some apps change the permissions in the registry, and that makes
unable to continue with login, so it cames back to the ctrl+alt+del

We have had this problem with ViewNow Netmanage, Novell supplied a
special nwgina.dll, they said the fix will be in the next patch (it is

not in the "e" post SP2).

problem between xp home/netware client 4.83sp2 & win95 clients
This may not even be down to Netware, but I am trying to eliminate certain factors. we have 3 older PCs running Win95 v4.00.95b and the original Netware 32 client (it came with Intranetware 4.11) and one new machine that has WinXP Home and the Netware client 4.83sp2. At first everything was fine, then we had a problem with the new machine and we ended up re-installing XP Home and fitting a new network card. This seemed to be OK for a few days when we noticed these 3 older PCs started to lock up, with explorer.exe not responding and we had to switch them off to get them ...

Windows XP Netware Client and Netware 4.11 server
I am having some odd problems with this combination. Most of our client machines are W98 and the login script seems to work just fine. The new Windows XP Pro computer I am trying to add to the network doesn't seem to behave the same as my W2K Pro computers using the same Novell Client. Login times and NetWare rescource access times were very long so I removed the IP support from the Novell Client, specified the 802.3 frame used by the 4.11 server and specified its actual network number in the NWLink protocol settings. That helped one login user: everything worked nicely, l...

Netware 4.1 windows xp or xp professional and which client
I have Netware 4.1 running on dos with dataflex and windows 98 machines. I am getting a Windows xp or xp professional machine.

Netware and Windows XP Home
I understand that the Netware Client is not officially supported on Windows XP Home. I've also read on this site that much of Netware 6.5's functionality is available with only a browser on the client. Does this mean that I no longer need the Netware Client on a Netware 6.5 installation? However, if the Netware Client is still needed, are there any workarounds for Windows XP Home. Thanks!!! Jerry K. A client is still recommended in most cases. There are no required workarounds for XP Home because there are no issues. It is simply not supported because MS does n...

Capturing Netware Printers under XP
Is it possible to capture a Netware SB4.2 printer as a DOS printer with Windows XP Pro? I can add a Netware printer OK in XP, but I don't see where it lets you assign an LPT port to it.

Login to Netware on an XP machine
We have an XP machine with Windows XP SP1 installed, aswell Novell Client 4.90. Aswell as having the client installed on an XP machine you need to have a local XP account setup. This is not a very viable option as we run in a school and can not have over 1000 user accounts on every pc. After some research I have created just the 1 XP and have enabled AutoAdminLogon in the registry. The only problem now is that when the PC boots the Auto logon happens for the XP account and loads straight to the desktop with giving you the option to logon to the Netware system. The onl...
