Running Windows 8 Pro x64 RTM, so I am not using a beta, release candidate, etc. I have installed "Novell Client 2 SP2 for Windows 7 (IR4a)". I am also using a Microsoft Live account instead of a local Windows account.

At the Windows login screen, I am able to successfully login to the Novell network, at which point I then specify my credentials for my Windows Live account. No problem there, though I do not ever see the Login results window.

When I get to my desktop, none of my Novell drives show in Explorer. I can right-click the red "N" in my system tray and my drives map without issue and everything works fine from then on, until next logoff/reboot.

I remembered having similar issues initially with Windows 7, but those went away (maybe after a newer Novell client was released?).

I saw some suggestions for changing GPO to make login scripts synchronous, but I did not see that option in Windows 8's GPO.

Anyone have any ideas?
