Fact

Novell Client 4.9 for Windows NT/2000/XP

Novell ZENworks Desktop Management

Novell ZENworks for Desktops 4 - ZFD4

Symptom

MicroSoft gina appears at bootup instead of Novell Gina

Novell login prompt not presented at bootup.

"Initial Novell Login" setting is unchecked on the Advanced Login tab in properties of the client

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\NWGINA  has PassiveMode set to 1 (1 = MSGina, 0=NWGina)

Cause

Client Configuration policy (a workstation policy) was changing the setting.

Fix

Check the box for using NWGina in the client config policy.

In the client config policy check ALL the settings must be set as desired on every tab.  This policy does not push down changes to the current client settings, it applies all settings literally as they are defined in the policy.
