a few problems

Postby sikserb on Thu Jul 04, 2002 10:30 pm

after a lot of testing and a little bit of convincing, we finally bought a full version of NIN.
It works great but I’m coming across a few problems.
1. 98SE laptops with WMI don’t report the username
2. New dell pc’s – it reports them as 1180 MHz instead of 1000 MHz with NT4 SP6 … it reports them correctly on Win2000
If you have any ideas let me know.

The problem with detecting the user name on Windows 95 and 98 machines is caused by the fact that there is no user name information DURING the network login.
The user name becomes available only after the login script has finished. To provide a workaroung for this issue we have implemented a new option - /syncuser in version 3.0.1 of Network Ivnentory Navigator.
The /syncuser option instructs ina32.exe to delay its execution until the login process has finished, and therefore it is safe to start detection of the user ID.

An alternative solution is the /userid=<value> option, which can be used on Novell network because the User ID is available in the login script as %LOGIN_NAME variable, so you can start ina32.exe as shown below:

ina32.exe /userid=%LOGIN_NAME

On the second issue, please run ina32.exe manually using the following
command-line options:

> ina32.exe /debug /force

This will produce a debug log file in the same directory where ina32.exe
resides (provided the folder is write enabled).

Please e-mail us the log file and we should be able to identify the source of
the problem.
