Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows


When entering the UNC path for a Novell-based resource that the workstation is not currently authenticated to, in the Novell Login dialog that gets presented with the "Tree:" and "Server:" fields already populated, LDAP Contextless Login does not fire when you change the "Username:" field contents, even though at the bottom of the Novell Client login dialog it confirms "LDAP Contextless Login is enabled for <TREENAME>".

LDAP Contextless Login is working in other scenarios, including the credential provider-based login eDirectory and  Windows, and also the red 'N' login to eDirectory only using "Novell Login".


Fixed in Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR7) and later.
