LDAP Disabling anonymous binds stops Netware client from doing contextless login
Netware Client 4.9.0 SP2
Proxy_User has been created with blank password.
I have been instructed by our auditors to disable anonymous binds on the LDAP server object.
When I do this the LDAP contextless login feature of the Netware client stops working.
I've been reading the documentation and tids on ldap and feel as if I'm going in circles... :)
Can someone lend a hand, or point me to a good, complete document that discusses LDAP configuration, security, requirements, etc?
Thanks in advance.
Network / Email Admin...Slow login with LDAP Contextless login enabled
Has anyone run into the problem were users take over a minute to login?
If the user does a logout and then login again without restarting the
machine it takes 10 seconds.
So the problem is only when the computer is restarted.
If I disable the LDAP Contextless login in NWClient 4.92Sp2 the login
takes 10 seconds and the problem is gone...
The environment is NW6.5 SP6 ( I know, we will upgrade to SP8 as soon
as possible :-)
eDir is 22.214.171.124 and will also be upgraded asap.

I'm evaluating ZCM 10.3 running on Windows Server 2008 R2, one machine
with XP SP3, Novell Client 4.91 SP5 and ZCM Client 10.3.0.27649

xp and eDir.
Novell Client login is fine, but then I get ZCM login window with the
same username. Entering the correct password brings me the message
"Unable to log into the network because the login credentials or the
server certificate is incorrect."
I have reinstalled the Novell Client and tried a lot of things from TID

I am having issues with the Vista Beta client and LDAP. I set all of the

credentials are correct. When I change the context to the OU the username
resides, login works fine. Is there anyone out there who has come across

Is it possible to have BOTH LDAP Contextless login AND RDN login available
AT THE SAME TIME? I'm asking because I would like to use contextless login
but it would generate far less helpdesk call if I could still retain RDN
login. When I tried it, it gave an LDAP error when I entered a RDN (ie,
sylvain.adm instead of just sylvain) using the NW4.9SP1 client on Windows
Not to my knowledge; only the "common name" portion goes into the

For the re...Vista Client LDAP Contextless login
The contextless login feature in the Vista 32 client (have not tested it
with 64 bit) does not work from the Vista login screen, it works only if the
Novell login is called via right mouse key on the red N in the task bar.
This is a show stopper for our University, we have around 280 OU´s and need
this feature on the general login screen.

I want to login into netware after the user has logged in into
windows. I also want to be able to logout from novell without leaving
the windows session (win2K, XP).
Is that possible?
Do I need special tools in order to do that or is it sufficient to
install novell client software?
Is it possible not only to login but also to run the novell login

I have one W2K Workstation after it is booted the Microsoft login Window

I can not find a parameter in the Novell-Client which causes this.
I'm gratefully looking forward to somebodys help.

We are still having this issue - with ldap contextless login set
the client can login within 30 seconds without the listed error code
(specifically Error code: 0x800789FC ) - with NO ldap contextless
As soon as we enable - LDAP CONTEXTLESS LOGiN - it all fails again
Actually it fails almost immediately with error - The tree or server

This is partway thru login script processing after successful 802.1x
authentication. I've seen at least one or two posts similar to this from
4.91sp4 beta. We are running the final release of 4.91sp4. Machines have
integrated Intel ProSet wireless.
Have tried all sorts of things... disabled DHCP for SLP and SLP Active
Discovery and hardcoded SLPDA's and scopes... entered server IP address at
initial Novell login.
I'm looking for other ideas here, any suggestions?
Eric ...Client 4.91 SP2 contextless LDAP login with aliases
Trying to roll out the new client version 4.91 SP2 but hitting an issue
where users are presented with two choices for context, one user
container, one alias container. Can the LDAP server be modified to ignore
alias objects, or reference them back to the original user object.
I know this is a "feature" that has been enabled in 4.91, but it's killing
me!!! any way to turn it off would be appreciated, either at the client
end, or on the LDAP server side.
Rumor has it said feature is currently working as designed.
