    Prevent authentification windows at logon

    Hi,
    How can we hide or prevent the zenworks authentification windows to appear at Windows logon? The reason: laptops that doesn't have always a lan connection will always have the Zen authentification windows that will appear after the user have entered his windows startup credentials.....

    Is there some registry keys? or option trigger

    And in our case, event if we have lan connection, could be great if this zen windows never appeard at all....

    because we never directly logon to zen, only by our eDirectory Ldap sync...

    thank you for your support !

    Create the DisablePassiveModeLoginPrompt registry key.

    Value name: DisablePassiveModeLoginPrompt
    Value data: Any non-zero value (for example, 1, 2, 3, 100)

    Dominicm,

    what Craig proposed will work, but means that you will never
    authenticate to ZCM at all, so user-based bundles and policies won't be
    applied. With ZCM 11, you can define locations; if you make sure you
    have the locations set up correctly, you can create an "unknown"
    location, that has no closest servers, and if the device sees that it's
    in the unknown location it will then not attempt to login

    @Spond - could you please provide some guideline how to configure your mentioned Unknown location policy that will prevent authentication?

    I sadly found that the location refresh is slow and unreliable when used with Sleep Mode. . .

    Odegos,

    I just don't assign any policies or networks to it

    Re: Prevent authentification windows at logon

    I've tried the "DisablePassiveModeLoginPrompt" and it works perfectly. When I'm connected to our network, my eDir login sync with my edit source defined on zenworks. When I'm out of connection, I'm login in windows directly, and no Zen prompt appears. Only the local application assigned to workstation from zen will be showed....

    exactly what I want!

    Don't have tested the locations, I will ...

    Dominicm,

    that's what happens when you post on your day off Yeah I mis-spoke
    about Craig's suggestion, it will do what you want, unless there's a
    problem when you're in the office (because ZCM won't ever prompt for a
    login).
