Groupwise Linux Client

Hello,

 I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions on how to force the client
to ask for a username each time instead of retaining the user id of the
last person who logged in. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Uwe,

 I can do that and it (for linux client its -@u=? ) but it leaves the last
users name in the username box. I need this to go away for security reasons
since this is a school environment. Thanks.

Andrew

Andrew,

I don't think you can blank it, unless maybe you restrict rights to the appropriate part of the registry. On Linux, I don't know where this is stored at all. I can look into it further if you need this information.
What if you use "/@u-??" or maybe "/u-YourGWIDhere" which would overwrite the last user.

Thanks, the idea of supplying the username to overwrite the value with is a
good idea. It does complain about that user (yourgwidhere) not being a
valid user and if I make it valid i'm not sure if it will just at that
point try and log the user in, which just gives me the password box when
the app is first launched. Thanks your suggestions have helped a lot if you
have any other ideas just let me know. Thanks again

Ah, that's the Linux client, doesn't happen on Win32 :-)

I was sure this would be easy, but in fact it is not :-(
In the current home directory, there's a folder .novell/groupwise
Inside there's a gwuser.xml which holds the login credentials, so I thought if you manipulate this, it would do what you want. I also deleted the directory named after the last logged in user, but alas, no success.

I'll try and find out where else it stores the last user.

Hey,

 Thanks again for yor effort with this. I can't figure out either where it
is storing the last username because I tried the same thing with deleting
the subdirectory that holds user prefs but that didn't work. well if you
find anything just let me know.

Nobody knows where it caches the last user, and the additional info was that it always worked this way and will not change <G>
So, just use the workaround and go to support.novell.com/enhancement to raise your voice.

Sorry, that's as far as I got :-)
