Unable to browse the contexts below Locality containers from the GUI login
User group membership not recognized during the login script processing
Network drives are not mapped during login procedure


User is logging in from a SLED 10 workstation using the Novell Client for Linux; symptoms does not show up performing the same operation from a Windows workstation.


Fixed in Novell Client for Linux version 2.0 (Released)

Additional Information

The Novell client for Linux v1.2 and v2.0 Beta does not properly handle contexts that include a Locality object.

In the login GINA, selecting the context button, is not possible to browse the tree starting from the Locality container and below.
If the full context of the user is inserted manually the login is successful, but every script command that is supposed to verify attributes of objects located under a
locality container fails.

An example is the statement IF MEMBER OF "GROUP" THEN. If the users and the group are in a locality container or below it, the match
fails and the command in the IF statement is not executed.
