When launching a web site with the Internet Explorer which needs credentials , for exampleoneNet/nsadmin">http:///oneNet/nsadmin, it should take the credentials from the logged in user and authenticate against it. But after after launching an application object where the script engine is left empty, Netidentity pops up with a window to put the username and credentials in.


Workaround: If possible use a different Script Engine to execute the script.

For ZDM7: Fixed in ZENworks 7 with SP1 Desktop Management, available at

For ZDM6.5 SP2: fixed in ZENworks 6.5 Desktop Management SP2 IR1 or newer found at
