IPTV Content Manager and Novell 6 Zenworks Dynamic Local User

We are running Cisco IPTV viewer 3.2.24 along with Windows 2000 Professional on Dell260 workstations. We run Novell, version 6 with Zenworks 4 and Dynamic Local User to create a new user on the workstation. Every time a new user is created we have to add the tcp/ip address for the Content Manager. Is there a way to retain the address of the Content Manager for any user that is created on the local workstation so that we don't have to enter the address each time a new user sign-on to the workstation?

Re: IPTV Content Manager and Novell 6 Zenworks Dynamic Local Use

Unfortunately, it seems, there is no work-around for this problem in 3.2 version of the IPTV Viewer. The Content Manager address is stored in the registry setting in HKEY_USERS.

The behavior is different for viewer 3.4 where the CM address is stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and is common to all users.

Solution is -

a. Upgrade to IPTV 3.4 or 3.5 Viewer

or

b. Use the Web-based Program Guide

You could also try playing around with setup.ini/iptv.ini {GuideServer= and GuideServerPort= } settings to see if there is any luck to hard-code this information while installing the software.

We tried installing iptv 3.5, but it did not hold the content manager's tcp/ip address for any new users. We put the address for the content manager in the iptv.ini file of the 3.5 version and it worked. Thank you for your help, we appreciate you taking the time to post a response to our question.
