Workstation Only hidden/not hidden

We have a W2K/NetWare network with several thousand users and ZENWorks V4.0.1.

Some users (usually due to password sync issues) are enabling "Workstation
Only" and thus not receiving their ZENWorks application pushes and policies.

We know that we can remove the "Workstation Only" checkbox. That's simple.

The problem is what happens when the workstation malfunctions, and cannot
log into the NetWare network.

This will cause a visit by our in-house level 1 field service tech. Our
level 1 techs do not have local administrative rights, and we do not want
them mucking with the registry.

Has anyone come up with a solution to this? My boss has asked if there is a
way to hide the workstation only button, but bring it forward with a
hot-key combo. Create a hidden Workstation Only button, so to speak.

Any help appreciated.

-Randall.

Suggestion (not tested):
- identify the registry key that make the "workstation only" option
visible/invisible
- create a REG file to show/hide it, and make that REG file available to
Level 1 engineers
- explain them how to use it ... :-)

Note: you can "play" a REG file even if you are not administrator. Just
check that the registry value you have to change is not ACL-protected ...

When booted in safe mode, Windows always uses msgina.dll (the microsoft 
login window), even if another one is configured in the registry. And 
this is equal to novell login with workstation only checked.

Hidden vs True Hidden
Does anyone know how programs like Boot-US make partitions "true hidden"? As opposed to just regular hidden, which win2k and above seem to treat as not hidden. :-( -- 1drum Hi, XOSL uses Partition ID 0x17 for Hidden NTFS partition types and Windows XP SP2 does not attempt to mount these or allocate drive letters to them. The 0x17 partition ID is used as this is a hang over from MS-DOS where any partition with an ID over 0xF was effectivly ignored by MS-DOS. Subtractring 0x10 from the Hidden Partition ID gives the correct ID type for the partition e.g. 0x7 w...

Basically, the user can login just fine and all drive mappings are present. However, after about 10 to 15 minutes, the user will get the following message when trying to access a mapped drive: H:\ Is not accessible. The specified network name is no longer available. This is machine specific. The user can login to other machines with no issues. Also, I have been told another port in the switch was tried as well as a new N...
