Each setting is presented in the following format:

Setting Name: Typically, the name as presented in the Novell Client Properties pages.

Registry Key: The location in the registry where this setting is stored.

Value Name: The exact name as entered in the registry.

Value Data Type: The data type for this setting (REG_DWORD, REG_SZ, etc.)

Valid Data Range: The range of values allowable for this setting

Setting Default: The default value used by the Novell Client when newly installed.

Default Data: The data stored in the registry when the Novell Client is newly installed.

Help/Comment: Help text available in the Novell Client Property pages, and additional information which may be helpful in understanding the purpose and operation of the setting.

Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Novell cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

Client Tab

Setting Name: Product name

Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Client\Version]

Value Name: ProductName

Value Data Type: REG_SZ

Valid Data Range: N/A

Setting Default: Depends on product and version being installed

Default Data: Depends on product being installed

Help/Comment: This value will be set to the product name corresponding to the operating system installed on the machine. Related registry settings BuildNumber, MajorInternalVersion, MajorVersion, MinorInternalVersion, MinorVersion, ProductDescription, and SupportPackVersion are documented elsewhere in this document.

System Login Profiles Tab (registry locations refer to the default profile)

User login profiles (as opposed to system login profiles described here), with all the same settings, are located under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\Users\\.

Note: The tab numbers included in the listed “Registry Key” may vary. For example, the registry key for the eDirectory tab is described below as [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default\Tab1], but may be Tab2 or Tab3, Tab4, or Tab5 instead.

Setting Name: Save Profile after successful login.

Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default]

Value Name: Save On Exit

Value Data Type: REG_DWORD

Valid Data Range: 0 to 1

Setting Default: 1 (enabled)

Default Data: 1

Help/Comment: If this box is checked, the profile will be changed to reflect the last set of information used to log in. This includes all the information on the Novell Login tabs such as context, tree, and script settings.

Credentials Tab (System Login Profile)

Setting Name: Credentials Tab

Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default]

Value Name: Tab

Value Data Type: REG_SZ

Valid Data Range: N/A

Setting Default: Credentials

Default Data: Credentials

Setting Name: User Name

Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default]

Value Name: UserName

Value Data Type: REG_SZ

Valid Data Range: N/A

Setting Default: N/A

Default Data: None (value not present in registry by default)

Help/Comment: Unlike the Novell Client for Windows XP/2003, this value is None (value not present in registry by default) in the registry. By default, the username field in the Default System Profile is not editable. This is a design-level behavior that differs between the Novell Client for Windows XP/2003 and the Novell Client for Windows 7.

On the Novell Client for Windows 7, the eDirectory username /inside/ the profile is implicitly the same as the user for whom the profile has been created and/or is about to be created. The "Username:" field in the "Credentials" tab of the Windows 7 client is grayed out because it will by definition follow/match/mirror the username that is entered into the Novell Client for Windows 7 credential provider.

Allowing the eDirectory username inside the profile to differ from the eDirectory username entered into the credential model would break the overall intended and expected behavior. The username entered into the credential provider is what selects which profile might be used. (i.e. First check for a user-level profile for the user entered, else fall back to a system profile.) The profile selected then provides everything besides the username itself.

Setting Name: Enable Password Field

Registry Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\Profiles\System\Default]

Value Name: Password Enable

Value Data Type: REG_DWORD

Valid Data Range: 0 to 1

Setting Default: 1 (enabled)

Default Data: 1

Help/Comment: Controls whether the password field appears on the Novell Credential Provider login screen.
