JSI Tip 2351. My Netware logon scripts don't run in Windows 2000?

If you have CSNW or GSNW installed, and you try to logon immediately after start up, your Netware logon scripts don't run. If you wait a few minutes, or logoff / logon, they do run?

The problem is that the Netlogon service is started before the Netware client process.

To fix the problem, use Regedt32 to navigate to:


Double-click the List value name in the right hand pane.

Click in the Multi-String Editor to remove the selection highlighting.

Scroll down the list to NetBIOSGroup.

Remove the entry and add it to the end of the list.

Add a blank line after the NetBIOSGroup entry.

Navigate to:


On the Edit menu, Add Value name Group as a string (REG_SZ) data type.

Type NetworkProvider into the String Editor.

Exit Regedt32 and restart your computer.
