Thanks...We'll take a look at this.  By the way, our situation may be
somewhat unique, as our environment looks like this:

-NDS 5.x
-NDS for NT (we have NT domain controllers but samsrv.dll has been replaced
w/ Novell's version, which redirects authentication traffice to NDS)
-All Citrix servers sit in one domain while all user accounts come from an
accounts domain
-User accounts also come from multiple contexts within NDS, thus contextless
login is important.

I'd be interested to know if anyone else has been brave enough to attempt a
Citrix deployment in such a complicated mixed environment...

Hi
You seem to be having a large number of issues with Novell and Citrix.
Ive deployed it myself a large number of times and havent come accross the
same issues you are having.I have been in those situations myself with the
mixed environment. Most of the time the issues have purely been with the
Flaky Novell clients or the odd registry key.

Even though you are in the states , have a chat with these guys.
They are spcialists with Citrix and Novell and also have written a number of
custom applications to assist with Novell /Citrix depployments. Even Novell
recommend them.

Also i would like to point out that im not in any way associated with
centralis in any shape or form. I have been a customer of theirs in the past
though.

regards
