    Useful in installations where users do not wish to learn about the longer naming convention and to simplify for traveling users. In general, a name context is specified in the NET.CFG on each workstation. This helps the owner of the workstation to log in. However, if another user from a different department (context) needs to use this workstation to log into the network, it is a little more involved. It is the goal of NDSLogin to simplify such situations.

    NDSLogin is simply a front-end utility to the standard NetWare LOGIN. NDSLogin takes the same arguments as LOGIN, but tries to parse out the username portion. Using the name, NDSLogin will search the NDS tree to locate user objects with this (common) name. If there are duplicates, the first 10 will be displayed and the user can choose from the displayed list.

    Once the user object is located, and its context determined, NDSLogin passes control to NetWare LOGIN. Therefore, all login script commands will be processed.

    See NDSLOGN1.HTM enclosed in the ZIP file for detailed information about NDSLogin.
