Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows: Registry Settings
By Earle Wells

The related Cool Tool is Group Policy Administrative Template for Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows.

This article documents many of the settable parameters which control the behavior of the Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows, which is supported on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012. It is organized under the following sections, corresponding to the tabs on the Novell Client Configuration page, along with a number of settings for which no user interface currently exists.

Each setting is presented in the following format:

Setting Name: Typically, the name as presented in the Novell Client Properties pages.
Registry Key: The location in the registry where this setting is stored.
Value Name: The exact name as entered in the registry.
Value Data Type: The data type for this setting (REG_DWORD, REG_SZ, etc.)
Valid Data Range: The range of values allowable for this setting
Setting Default: The default value used by the Novell Client when newly installed.
Default Data: The data stored in the registry when the Novell Client is newly installed.
Help/Comment: Help text available in the Novell Client Property pages, and additional information which may be helpful in understanding the purpose and operation of the setting.

Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Novell cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

Client Tab

Setting Name: Product name
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Client\Version]
Value Name: ProductName
Value Data Type: REG_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: Depends on product and version being installed
Default Data: Depends on product being installed
Help/Comment: This value will be set to the product name corresponding to the operating system installed on the machine. Related registry settings BuildNumber, MajorInternalVersion, MajorVersion, MinorInternalVersion, MinorVersion, ProductDescription, and SupportPackVersion are documented elsewhere in this document.

System Login Profiles Tab

(registry locations refer to the default profile)

User login profiles (as opposed to system login profiles described here), with all the same settings, are located under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\Users\<UserName>\<ProfileName>.

Note: The tab numbers included in the listed “Registry Key” may vary. For example, the registry key for the eDirectory tab is described below as [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default\Tab1], but may be Tab2 or Tab3, Tab4, or Tab5 instead.

Setting Name: Save Profile after successful login.
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default]
Value Name: Save On Exit
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 1 (enabled)
Default Data: 1
Help/Comment: If this box is checked, the profile will be changed to reflect the last set of information used to log in. This includes all the information on the Novell Login tabs such as context, tree, and script settings.

Credentials Tab

(System Login Profile)

Setting Name: Credentials Tab
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default]
Value Name: Tab
Value Data Type: REG_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: Credentials
Default Data: Credentials
Setting Name: User Name
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default]
Value Name: UserName
Value Data Type: REG_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Unlike the Novell Client for Windows XP/2003, this value is None (value not present in registry by default) in the registry. By default, the username field in the Default System Profile is not editable. This is a design-level behavior that differs between the Novell Client for Windows XP/2003 and the Novell Client for Windows 7.

On the Novell Client for Windows 7, the eDirectory username /inside/ the profile is implicitly the same as the user for whom the profile has been created and/or is about to be created. The “Username:” field in the “Credentials” tab of the Windows 7 client is grayed out because it will by definition follow/match/mirror the username that is entered into the Novell Client for Windows 7 credential provider.

Allowing the eDirectory username inside the profile to differ from the eDirectory username entered into the credential model would break the overall intended and expected behavior. The username entered into the credential provider is what selects which profile might be used. (i.e. First check for a user-level profile for the user entered, else fall back to a system profile.) The profile selected then provides everything besides the username itself.

Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: If this setting is on, any periods entered in the Novell username will be treated as part of the name, rather than as context delimiters. The user will not be able to enter the context as part of the username, but will have to enter it separately. This makes it possible for the user to login with a username such as ‘John.Smith’ to both Novell and Windows.
Setting Name: Allow Roaming User Profile Paths to non-Windows Servers
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
Value Name: CompatibleRUPSecurity
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Enables or disables the Windows ‘Do not check for user ownership of Roaming Profile Folders’ policy. By default, Windows attempts to enhance profile security by checking the permissions on a remote roaming profile directory. But the check is performed in a Windows-specific manner, and this fails when the roaming profile path is to a Novell or other non-Windows-compatible resource. Setting this parameter to ‘On’ allows roaming profile paths to Novell and other non-Windows servers by disabling this Windows-specific security check. Note this policy is defined and controlled by Windows and not the Novell Client, so group policies and other Windows management tools may also set or change this policy (‘CompatibleRUPSecurity’).
Setting Name: Clear Connections
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login]
Value Name: Clear Connections
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0

Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 1
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Specifies whether the Computer Only Logon option is shown when the Novell Logon option is presented by the Welcome screen. The Computer Only Logon option is used to log in to the Windows workstation without logging in to the Novell network.
Setting Name: Computer Only Logon after failed Novell logon
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Authentication\NCCredProvider]
Value Name: ComputerOnlyLogonAfterFailedNovellLogon
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 2
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Determines whether or not Computer Only Logon is offered when a Novell Logon attempt fails. Possible values include:0: Automatic
1: Always
2: Never– ‘Automatic’: A Computer Only Logon will be offered unless the administrator has hidden the ‘Computer Only Logon’ option.– ‘Always’: A Computer Only Logon will be offered regardless of whether the Computer Only Logon option has been hidden.
– ‘Never’: A Computer Only Logon will not be offered regardless of whether the Computer Only Logon option has been hidden.
Setting Name: Computer Only Logon Default
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Authentication\NCCredProvider]
Value Name: ComputerOnlyLogonDefault
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 2
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Determines whether the Novell Client will default to using the Computer Only Logon mode. Possible values include:0: Automatic
1: Always
2: Never– ‘Automatic’: The Novell Client will remember when Computer Only Logon was the mode previously selected, and will continue defaulting to Computer Only Logon until Novell Logon mode is interactively selected again.
– ‘Always’: The Computer Only Logon will always be the default mode presented, even if Novell Logon was the previous mode used.
– ‘Never’: Novell Logon will always be the default mode presented, even if Computer Only Logon was the previous mode used.
Setting Name: Context Box
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Tab Settings\NDS]
Value Name: DisableContext
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Specifies whether the Context is displayed on the Login dialog. The disabled field will still appear on the GUI Login and the user will be able to read the information in the field, but it will be grayed out and the user will not be able to change any of the information stored in the field.
Setting Name: Context Browse Button
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Tab Settings\NDS]
Value Name: DisableContextBrowse
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Specifies whether the Context Browse button is displayed on the Login dialog. The disabled button will still appear on the GUI Login, but it will be grayed out.
Setting Name: Default bitmap for Novell Login dialog
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Banner]
Value Name: Image
Value Data Type: REG_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Specifies the path and filename for a bitmap that will be used on the Novell Login dialog in place of the default Novell Client bitmap. Custom bitmap sizes can be used, but will affect the overall size of the Novell Login dialog.With regard to the size of the bitmap that should be used, Novell Client creates the bitmap of the correct dimensions at runtime. It uses a pre-determined height for the image, but the width depends upon the size of the horizontal space available.To create a bitmap of the right size for a particular machine, make a screen shot of the login dialog and observe the dimensions for the dialog displaying Novell Client’s own bitmap. (e.g. Cut and paste just the Novell banner out of that image, and see how big just that portion is.)

Because the dimensions may vary depending on the machine, e.g. some have 96 dpi, some have 144 dpi, etc.; the Novell Client creates its own bitmap at runtime to be the correct size.

Setting Name: Default bitmap for Welcome screen tiles
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Authentication\NCCredProvider]
Value Name: Tile Bitmap
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Specifies the path and filename for a bitmap that will be used on Welcome screen tiles whenever a user-specific bitmap is not yet known. Note that Windows imposes the size limit on any bitmap used for a Welcome screen tile, and will stretch / deform the bitmap provided to conform to that limit as needed.Windows will scale any customer-provided Welcome screen tile to be 128×128 in the credential provider, so it is recommended that any custom tile should use that resolution.
Setting Name: Enable Single Sign-On
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Single Sign-On]
Value Name: Enable SSO
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Enables use of Novell NMAS-based Single Sign-On for automatically providing the Windows account password during an otherwise non-password-based Novell eDirectory login using NMAS. This setting is only available on machines where the installed version of the Novell NMAS client supports Single Sign-On capabilities. The Novell Client “Single Sign-On” functionality was introduced in Novell Client 2 SP2. See “Setting Up Single Sign-On (SSO)” in Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows Administration Guide
Setting Name: Force Grace Login Password Change
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login]
Value Name: ForceGraceLoginPasswordChange
Value Data Type: REG_SZ
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: This setting forces the user to change their password at the last grace login. With this settings activated, when the password expires, the password must be changed in order to successfully log in.
Setting Name: Forgotten Password Prompt
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login]
Value Name: Forgotten Password
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 1
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Specifies whether the Forgotten Password Prompt is displayed on the Login dialog. This prompt provides an option to recover from a forgotten password based on an administrator defined password policy.
Setting Name: Last Logged On User
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
Value Name: DontDisplayLastUserName
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Specifies whether the last logged on user is displayed along with the Novell Logon when logging on to the computer. This Windows setting determines whether a user name appears in the “Log on to Novell Network” dialog box. When this value is “Off” (set to 1), the user name field in the “Log On to Novell Network” dialog box is blank.
Setting Name: Login Profile List
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login]
Value Name: Enable Login Profile Display
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 2
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Specifies whether the Login Profiles list on the Login dialog is enabled. Possible values include:0: Off (don’t show display)
1: On (show display)
2: Automatic (only show display if there is a system or user profile other than “DEFAULT”.)If this value is not found in the registry, it will be set to “AUTO”.

Setting Name: Login Windows password synchronization option default
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Authentication\NCCredProvider]
Value Name: InitialSynchronizeNTPasswordState
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: This is the default state of the ‘Change your Windows password to match your Novell password’ functionality that occurs during login to both eDirectory and Windows when the passwords are not already synchronized. This setting controls the default synchronization behavior that will occur, regardless of whether ‘Show login Windows Password synchronization option’ is allowing the checkbox to be shown to the user or not.
Setting Name: Login with Non-Novell Credential Provider
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Network Provider\Initial Login]
Value Name: Login With Non-Novell Credential Provider
Value Data Type: REG_SZ
Valid Data Range: No to Yes
Setting Default: No
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: This setting controls whether a Novell login will still be attempted after the Windows logon, in cases where the Novell Client’s credential provider was not used during the Windows logon. Setting “Login With Non-Novell Credential Provider” to “On” (Yes) and setting “Novell Logon” to “Off” (0) achieves the same functionality on Windows as the “PassiveModeNDSLogin” configuration achieved on Windows XP/2003.
Setting Name: NMAS Authentication
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login]
Value Name: NMAS Authentication
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 1
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: If this setting is on, Novell Modular Authetication Services (NMAS) is enabled during login. NMAS authentication adds additional security to the network. However, if your network does not use NMAS, login may take additional time and you might want to disable NMAS authentication by setting this off.
Setting Name: Novell Logon
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Authentication\NCCredProvider]
Value Name: Enabled
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 1
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Enable the Novell Logon option when logging on to the computer. Setting “Login With Non-Novell Credential Provider” to “On” (Yes) and setting “Novell Logon” to “Off” (0) achieves the same functionality on Windows 7/2008/8/2012 as the “PassiveModeNDSLogin” configuration achieved on Windows XP/2003.
Setting Name: Prompt for Novell login during Windows AutoAdminLogon
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\\Login]
Value Name: AutoAdminQueryNDS
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: If the Novell Login parameter is enabled, and Windows is configured to perform a Windows-only AutoAdminLogon as a specific user account, enabling this setting causes a Novell login to interactively prompt for eDirectory login information to be used in addition to the AutoAdminLogon-defined Windows login.
Setting Name: Server Connection Retries
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login]
Value Name: Max Retries
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 60
Setting Default: 5
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)

Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 26 (decimal, with 1-26 corresponding to A-Z)
Setting Default: 0 (Automatic)
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: This parameter defines which Windows drive letter the Novell Client will start with in response to eDirectory login script commands such as “MAP *1″ and “MAP NEXT”, which are expecting to utilize drive letters relative to a First Network Drive setting which may be unique to each machine where the eDirectory login script executes. The First Network Drive setting only applies to these “relative” drive mapping commands. The First Network Drive setting does not force or prevent attempts to map using an explicit drive letter reference (such as “MAP E:”), nor does the First Network Drive setting affect or prevent drive selection in the “Novell Map Network Drive” feature available in the red “N” menu.By default, the First Network Drive parameter is set to “Automatic”. This means that the Windows drive letter will be determined and selected automatically based on the local virtual and physical drives present at the time the map command is executed. Starting with drive “A:”, the Novell Client will skip past any removable media, hard disk drives, optical drives and RAM disks and will select the first available Windows drive letter after these local drives. For example, if drive letters “A:” through “P:” are already assigned to local drives on the current Windows machine, having the Novell Client “First Network Drive” parameter set to “Automatic” will choose “Q:” as the effective First Network Drive letter during the map command.For more information regarding the MAP command and syntax, see the Novell Login Script Commands and Variables documentation (http://www.novell.com/documentation/beta/linux_client/login/data/hb3rxdni.html).

Name Services Tab

All configured name service providers are queried asynchronously in order to resolve the name to an address. They are first queried with a cache flag that allows name service providers (NSP) who maintain a cache to attempt to resolve the name. If no NSP resolves the name, they are queried again without the cache flag. NetWare Core Protocol™ uses information contained in the active NCP™ connections. Service Location Protocol queries SLP for eDirectory and Bindery names.

Help/Comment: This setting is involved with configuring a Windows service for authentication to eDirectory.For the registry key name, use the name of the Windows user account specified for the Windows service “Log On” configuration. For example, if the Windows service was configured to log on with a Windows user account named “AntiVirusUpdateUser”, the registry key that needs to be created is [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Login\Service Account eDirectory Login\AntiVirusUpdateUser]. If the Windows user account name was “DataSyncService”, the registry key that needs to be created is [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Login\Service Account eDirectory Login\DataSyncService], etc.This setting is required for the eDirectory login configuration to be honored. If this configuration needs to be temporarily disabled, this value can be set to 0×0 without having to remove any of the other related configuration values. This feature first became available with the Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows (IR6). See TID 7008266.
Setting Name: Default User Name
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Login\Service Account eDirectory Login\<name of the Windows user account specified for the Windows service "Log On" configuration >]

Help/Comment: This setting is involved with configuring a Windows service for authentication to eDirectory. This setting is required for the eDirectory login configuration to be honored. Specifies the complete distinguished name (DN) of the eDirectory user account to login with. For example, “AntiVirusUpdate.Services.MyCorp”. This eDirectory user account name does not have to match the Windows account name being used for the Windows service logon. This feature first became available with the Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows (IR6). See TID 7008266.
Setting Name: Default Tree Name
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Login\Service Account eDirectory Login\<name of the Windows user account specified for the Windows service "Log On" configuration >]
Value Name: DefaultTreeName
Value Data Type: REG_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: This setting is involved with configuring a Windows service for authentication to eDirectory. This setting is required for the eDirectory login configuration to be honored. Specifies one or more eDirectory tree names for which login should be attempted on behalf of the Windows service. For example, “MYTREE”. To specify more than one eDirectory tree name, create a single String value (not “Multi-String Value”) and provide a comma-separated list of eDirectory tree names for which login should be performed. For example, “MYTREE,ANOTHERTREE”. Note that the same eDirectory user account DN and password will be used for each eDirectory tree authenticated on behalf of this Windows service. Note that ONLY the actual eDirectory tree name is supported; the “DefaultTreeName” value cannot be set to “10.0.0.1″ or similar in an attempt to bypass name resolution requirements. The eDirectory tree name will either need to be successfully resolved by SLP or DNS, or will need to be resolved by a local HOSTS file entry matching the eDirectory tree name. This feature first became available with the Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows (IR6). See TID 7008266.
Setting Name: Default Password
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Login\Service Account eDirectory Login\<name of the Windows user account specified for the Windows service "Log On" configuration >]

Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: This setting is involved with configuring a Windows service for authentication to eDirectory. This setting is optional. If specified, contains a clear-text version of the password for the eDirectory user account specified in “DefaultUserName”. If this value is NOT created in the registry, the Novell Client will default to attempting to login to eDirectory using the same password as was specified for the Windows user account in the Windows service “Log On” configuration. Keeping the eDirectory user account password and Windows user account password in sync and then NOT creating the “DefaultPassword” value in the registry is the recommended approach, to avoid the security implications of a clear-text password saved in the registry. This feature first became available with the Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows (IR6). See TID 7008266.

Help/Comment: Disables the “Variables” button on the GUI login. To disable the button on the GUI login, create the registry entry and put a “1″ in the value. The disabled button still appears on the GUI Login, but it will be grayed out.

Shell Extensions

Setting Name: Trustees
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Shell Extensions]
Value Name: Trustees
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 1
Default Data: 1
Help/Comment: When disabled, the “Add” button will not be available in Novell Client displays of trustees. Although the “Add” button would be grayed out if the current authenticated eDirectory user didn’t have the permissions necessary to add or remove trustees, setting this value to 0 will make the “Add” button grayed out 100% of the time regardless of the authenticated eDirectory user’s permissions.
Setting Name: Properties
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Shell Extensions]
Value Name: Properties
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 1
Default Data: 1
Help/Comment: When disabled, changes in file or directory attributes will not be allowed in Novell Client displays of the file attributes. Although the current attribute checkboxes would be enabled or grayed out according to whether the current authenticated eDirectory user had the permissions necessary to change the attributes, setting this value to 0 will make the checkboxes grayed out 100% of the time regardless of the authenticated eDirectory user’s permissions. Note this setting has no effect on Windows’ own file property dialogs, which may also permit changing of some file or directory attributes. Only Novell Client-specific property pages are affected.
Setting Name: Compression
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Shell Extensions]
Value Name: Compression
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 1
Default Data: 1
Help/Comment: When disabled, the “Don’t Compress” and “Immediate Compress” attributes in the Novell Client displays of the file attributes cannot be changed. Normally the “Don’t Compress” and “Immediate Compress” attribute checkboxes are available based on whether the current server is NetWare 4.0 or later. Setting the “Compression” DWORD value to 0 will override this and unconditionally gray out the “Don’t Compress” and “Immediate Compress” attribute checkboxes 100% of the time.See also “Display Novell Rights Page” under “Advanced Menu Settings Tab” earlier in this document.

Other Settings

Setting Name: Mask Responses
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\NMAS\MethodData\challenge_response]
Value Name: mask_responses
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: 0
Help/Comment: This setting applies to the NMAS client. The challenge/response questions allow for any response, such as a word, a sentence, or a phrase. Because it might be difficult to correctly type a phrase or sentence when the text is hidden, answers are not hidden with asterisks by default, like passwords usually are. However, as an added layer of security, you can configure the challenge/response LCM to hide the user’s responses to the challenge questions. For example, when this functionality is enabled, instead of the user’s response reading “my son charlie” in plain text, the response reads “** *** *******.” See Section 6.3 “Using Forgotten Password Self-Service” in the Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows Administration Guide.
Setting Name: Filter List
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Authentication\NCCredProvider]
Value Name: FilterList
Value Data Type: REG_MULTI_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: See Help/Comment
Help/Comment: The Novell Client filters out other Credential Providers such that the Novell Credential Provider presents the login interface the user sees. By default, this value is populated with the following Credential Providers:{6f45dc1e-5384-457a-bc13-2cd81b0d28ed} (Windows 7 Password Provider)
{692d4db6-7e51-4370-a9ae-ae95848dbf1e} (ZENworks Credential Provider)
{3dd6bec0-8193-4ffe-ae25-e08e39ea4063} (NP Provider)
{60b78e88-ead8-445c-9cfd-0b87f74ea6cd} (Windows 8 Password Provider)The value for the Novell Client Credential Provider is {fF9CF286D-A029-41F9-86F6-90ACF0618AA4}, and should not be added to this list.

Setting Name: Max Retries Boot Threshold
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login]
Value Name: Max Retries Boot Threshold
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: 65
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: The Max Retries Boot Threshold is a “boot hold down time” relative to the Windows startup process. If the Windows “up time” is less than the specified number of seconds, we will wait until the Windows up time crosses that threshold, or until the redirector reports having one or more networks available, whichever comes first.The intention is that a longer wait for network interfaces to arrive is warranted if Windows is still in the process of booting up, but that this longer wait is unnecessary and frustrating for customers if repeated /every/ time the Novell Client login is invoked.e.g. If the redirector reports no networks are available, but Windows has been running for less than 65 seconds, the Novell Client will continue to wait for the redirector to report having networks available, until Windows has been running for 65 seconds. Once Windows has been running for 65 seconds or more, the Novell Client will only wait to the normal “Max Retries” time period (5 seconds). See TID 7006626.
Setting Name: NMAS Exception List
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Disconnected Login]
Value Name: Enforcement Exception List
Value Data Type: REG_MULTI_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Exception List is used to exempt some users from using NMAS based Windows Logon. This can be used only when the “Require Smart for Workstation Only Login” check box is enabled at the time of IAS client installation. Add user names to be exempted from NMAS based Windows logon. Separate each username with a Return Key press. See “Setting up NMAS Based Windows Logon” in the Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows Administration Guide.
Setting Name: DA Discovery List
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Policies\Network\IP\Address Resolution Providers]
Value Name: DA Discovery Sequence
Value Data Type: REG_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Beginning with Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR3), it is possible to override the default discovery sequence for Directory Agent discovery in OpenSLP. This makes it possible, for example, to force DA discovery using DHCP over manually configured DA. The value contains the sequence to be used for discovery of DAs, such as “DHCP,CONFIGURED,MULTICAST”. The DA discovery process will proceed in the order specified. If this property is not present, OpenSLP will be use the default DA discovery sequence of “CONFIGURED,DHCP,MULTICAST” To disable any of the SLP discovery methods, simply remove them from the list of methods in the DA discovery sequence. See TID 7013008.
Setting Name: Passive Mode NDS Login Silent
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Network Provider\Initial Login]
Value Name: PassiveModeNDSLoginSilent
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: Beginning with Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR3), it is possible to configure the Client such that the login attempt will “silently fail” when using the “Login with non-Novell Credential Provider = On” and the login attempt does not succeed. To enable this option, set the value to “1″. To disable the feature, set the value to “0″. See TID 7013013.
Setting Name: Info Cache Exception Process List
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Client\Parameters]
Value Name: InfoCacheExceptionProcessList
Value Data Type: REG_MULTI_SZ
Valid Data Range: N/A
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: When any application attempts to access the file server to obtain file or subdirectory information, the Novell Client checks to see if the application is included in the InfoCacheExceptionProcessList. If so, the Client uses the Info Cache Exception Timeout Milliseconds timeout value to invalidate the cache. If the cache has timed out when a listed application requests file information, the Client is required to retrieve the data anew from the server. As a result, if, for example, the timeout is set to 1 second (1000 milliseconds), it will take no longer than 1 second for the application to learn the current file size or other attribute information. Note: when an application configured in the list requests specifically file size information, the timeout used will be the configured timeout or 0.75 seconds, whichever is less. This setting is available in Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR5) and later. See TID 7014264.
Setting Name: Info Cache Exception Timeout Milliseconds
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Client\Parameters]
Value Name: InfoCacheExceptionTimeoutMilliseconds
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 1 -
Setting Default: 1000 (1 second) if value is present. Otherwise, 20000 (20 seconds) for basic information and 750 (.75 seconds) for file size information.
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: When any application attempts to access the file server to obtain file or subdirectory information, the Novell Client checks to see if the application is included in the Info Cache Exception Process List. If so, the Client uses the InfoCacheExceptionTimeoutMilliseconds timeout value to invalidate the cache. If the cache has timed out when a listed application requests file information, the Client is required to retrieve the data anew from the server.

Setting Name: Smart Card Logon Notify
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\Notify]
Value Name: SmartCardLogonNotify
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: N/A
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: By default Windows 7 and Windows 2008R2 do not notify other providers of a Smart Card login. Although not tested, we suspect that other Windows 6.x operating systems may behave the same way.See TID 7008382.
Setting Name: Run Scripts Synchronously
Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: RunLogonScriptSync
Value Data Type: REG_DWORD
Valid Data Range: 0 to 1
Setting Default: 0
Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)
Help/Comment: When logging in to both eDirectory and Windows through the credential provider of the Novell Client, the processing of login scripts stored in eDirectory now starts at the same time other login scripts are processed, such as the Windows user login script. This means that eDirectory login script execution will start (but not necessarily finish) before the user’s Desktop is built.In addition, existing Windows policies such as Run logon scripts synchronously now apply to how the Novell logon script execution will be handled. This appears to be the default behavior in Windows Server with Terminal Services, but the policy may need to be explicitly set in other Windows configurations.If you require that logon script processing must finish before the user’s desktop is built, you can enable this Windows policy in the Group Policy Editor (GPEDIT.MSC) under Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Scripts > Run logon scripts synchronously. Note the same policy is also available as a User Configuration policy.

Possible values include:

0: The logon script and Windows Explorer can run simultaneously.
1: Windows Explorer does not start until the logon script has finished running.

This restriction can be used either on a user by user basis by adding it to HKEY_CURRENT_USER or on a computer wide basis by adding it to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

    Setting Name: Bad Address Cache Timeout

    Registry Key:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Client\Nsvccost\Parameters]

    ‘SLP Maximum Results’ has a copy of the help/comment section from ‘SLP Broadcast Only’ instead of its own help/comment
