Novell Client for Windows 2000/XP/2003 4.91 Support Pack 4 Login
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Authentication


Unable to perform ZCM Kerberos authentication when Novell Client is installed on the workstation.


When Novell Client is available on a workstation the login is designed to accomodate DLU policy. Therefore Novell Client will try to perform ZCM login first so it can apply the DLU policy, before trying to single sign onto Windows. Kerberos authentication requires that the Windows authentication occurs before ZCM authentication, as it consumes the ticket issued by the Kerberos Authentication Server (AS). Thus, this is working as designed.
