Login prompts for Windows user & password during a DLU user's second login.

DLU fails with second user login.

User gets created by Workstation Manager on the first DLU login.

Manage existing user account (if any)' is unchecked.

Volatile user (Remove user after logout)' is unchecked.

Windows login works for the local account created for the DLU user if the correct password is manually entered.


Fixed in Service Pack 1 for ZENworks 6.5 Desktop Management found at Novell Product Updates.

Fixed in NWGINA.DLL dated 10 Dec 2004 or newer.

Workaround:  To avoid the prompt for the Windows account, enabling 'Manage existing user account (if any)' may be an option if managing the Windows accounts via the DLU policy is an option.  Do not enable 'Manage existing user account (if any)' if the DLU policy should not take control of the local Windows account.
