Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1 Authentication


When logging into Active Directory on a PC that uses the McAfee GINA, the user is not authenticated to the zone, and is not prompted to enter credentials for the zone. Once the desktop is displayed, by right-clicking the Z-Icon and choosing login, the user can authenticate.



This is fixed in version 10.2.1 - see KB 7003766 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.2.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Additional Information

The McAfee SBGINA is set as the primary GINA and fails to load nwgina due to the lack of support for the GINAchain.
