Enabling credentials pass-through to Windows TS running Novell Client

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:

  1. Upgrade your Novell client to 4.91SP3
  2. 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!)
