I'm working with the Vista client and found an issue with the login. When
I set contextless login to pull from our LDAP server using a DNS entry the
Novell cannot find my user. However if I use the IP Address for that same
server Novell will find the user. After bypassing novell (login
"workstation only") I can then use the systray icon to login the user, and
everything works well. With this info I believe that VISTA is blocking
DNS prior to login or authetication of the user. Is there a setting in
Vista to allow the client to pull the DNS entry? I want to avoid using a
Hosts file type entry, and I'm not even sure if that would help as after
logging in once, you would expect the address to be cached in the system.
