Featured eDirectory Tools - May 19, 2004

This week's featured Novell eDirectory tools:


NDS Login Script Editor 1.2 - Search or search & replace login scripts for users, organization containers, org units, templates, and profiles in NDS.
FreeWare by Jeff Brusoe
Contents: Script setup files and a readme in a .zip file
Notes: This program was used when we migrated from NetWare 5 to NetWare 6. As part of this migration, user data was moved from one server in the tree to another. After this was done, we next had to modify every login script, which obviously is time consuming to do and led to the creation of this program.

Autolog - Allow for fast configuration of automatic logon to the network and the workstation.
FreeWare by Tommy Mikkelsen
Contents: .exe setup file
Notes: Simply run the autolog.exe from the workstation in question, fill out the form with the necessary credentials, and click the "Enable AutoLogin" button. The next time you boot the workstation, you will not be prompted for a username or password but will automatically be logged in to both the workstation and the network.


LRights - Assign trustee rights to files or directories.
FreeWare by Wolfgang Schreiber
Contents: Readme text and executable in a .zip file
Notes: LRights is a stripped-down version of RIGHTS.EXE. It was specifically written to support long path/file names. The Delphi source code is available on
