Novell Client for Vista 1.0.0


The Vista workstation name had been changed previously.  The Novell client for Vista had been installed, and upon first login, an error message is displayed:  "The Domain name is not correct"


Search through the registry (regedit) and change any reference from the "Old" workstation name to the "New" one.

Additional Information

Note:  Always make a backup of the Windows registry before making any type of modification.  Failure to do so could result in a nonfunctional system.
