It is often necessary (and useful) to be able to automate credentials pass-through from Secure Global Desktop and the Sun Ray Windows Connector to a Windows Terminal Server that uses the Novell login "GINA" (Graphical Identification and Authentication).
Unfortunately, this doesn't work out of the box, unless you follow these instructions:
- Upgrade your Novell client to 4.91SP3
- Create the following registry entries in HKLM\\Software\\Novell\\Login
TSClientAutoAdminLogon = 1
DefaultLocationProfile = <LocationProfile> (Go for "Default")
Thanks go to Jon Knight for this valuable information - and for putting it all together. I finally got a chance to test all this at a customer site and it worked instantly, and while some of this has been documented for other platforms, I wanted to make a special mention: it actually works flawlessly with both SGD AND the Sun Ray Windows Connector (which of course presents us with different challenges and opportunities!)
