eDirectory credentials will not unlock windows workstations
After a workstation is locked I can only unlock a workstation with its
Active Directory credentials. This began after I rejoined the workstation
to the active directory domain. How can a regain the ability to unlock a
workstation using and eDirectory username and password.

IBM OEM Microsoft Windows XP And Windows XP SP1 are both reported to contain
a default passwordless administrative account.
Reportedly, during the installation process of IBMs OEM version of Windows
XP and Windows XP SP1, the process automatically creates an administrator
account and fails to set a password for it. The user is not made aware of
the account during installation.
Users installing this version of Microsoft Windows may fail to properly
secure this account, allowing for local attackers to gain administrative
privileges. Network access to accounts without passwords ...Windows 98SE to Windows XP Pro Workstation Upgrade

each xp box.

We have a strange situation. Win XP fully patched, ZfD4 running on NW6. Any
changes made to the registry (new printers, configuration changes) are GONE
after restarting the system. It's like registry changes are written to a
file and then backed out when the system is shut down.
Removing Workstation Manager solves the problem.
Anyone got any ideas? TIA.

Michael Murgolo:In my previous post on this topic, I mentioned that Windows
XP Service Pack 2 will copy the Administrators settings to Default User (see
sections B & C). The new profile copy is the default behavior in SP2 with
no built-in way to disable it. To disable it you had to request the hotfix
from KB887816 from Microsoft Customer Support.
This has changed with Windows XP Service Pack 3. The fix from KB887816 is
included in SP3. (See KB946480 for a list of fixes included in SP3.)
Therefore, the behavior for SP3 is no profile copy by default. To enable

What seems to be a reasonable step is to declare that Windows XP SP2
is the lowest supported version of Windows. Older versions will not
be blocked from working based on current plans, but are considered
What Unsupported Means:
* No tinderbox coverage
* No QA coverage
* No unit test or talos performance coverage
* Bugs only affecting these platforms will not be considered as
blocking any release 1.9.2 or later.

We may be moving away from Netware 5.1 sometime in the near future. We
also want to move away from Windows 98 and goto XP Pro before Longhorn
comes out. We have moved a few users to XP and so far we don't like
what's involved in managing local and network accounts.
Does anyone have a solution for managing local XP users and NDS users? I
would like to have it setup where users could walk up and login to any
workstation and have there pref's available.
Is this possible?
Your solution is Zenworks.

Can I set an option or a registry key so that when I have to unlock my
workstation it automatically unlocks from Windows? When our users have to
unlock it now goes for the tree and the unlock will take up to a minute.

We are a licensed customer of Novell Netware 4.11. We were printing

I have been using Netware 4.11 SP9. Workstations run win98 or Millenium.
They have been working fine.Recently I tried to login into 4.11 from a XP
Pro workstation, it wasn't possible.I was using the right client.
How can I resolve this problem ?
Thanks in advance.
Make sure the client is installed as "custom, IPX only". It isn't possible
to log into a NW4x server with IP.

Here's the scenario:
Windows XP clients started reporting to us that their machines were
freezing up. When we asked them to define it more clearly, it all seemed
to come out randomly.
No error messages are given.
No event log messages.
Task Manager won't open whilst the machine is in it's crashed state(making
the troubleshooting process extremely difficult).
The only correlation i could make was related to either two things:
1. The clients with the problems have 4.9 Netware clients installed, while
the ones not experiencing the issues have 4.83 versions.
