This article describes how to set a Default Preferred Server or Default Tree and Context, as well as Default Script Options for Client Services for NetWare (CSNW) and Gateway Services for NetWare (GSNW).
Usually, each user logging on to a workstation will be prompted for a Preferred Server, providing one has already been set. After the initial prompt, the user will not see the Preferred Server prompt again.
The following information will allow multiple users logging on to the same workstation to connect to the same Preferred Server. They will not be prompted for a Preferred Server.
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
NOTE: The following registry settings will be present only if an unattended installation of Windows NT was accomplished.
