Abstract

The DOS LAN Requester Windows product will allow a user to run shared applications which reside on an OS/2* network server. In order to run a shared application it must reside within the domain that the user attempting to run the shared application is logged onto. If the user is logged onto a different domain, then they need to log on to the correct domain before the shared application can be run.

Method to Allow a Windows User to Log On to a Different Domain in Order to Execute an Application on an OS/2 Network Server

       The DOS LAN Requester Windows product will allow a user
to run shared applications which reside on an OS/2* network server.
In order to run a shared application it must reside within the domain
that the user attempting to run the shared application is logged
onto.  If the user is logged onto a different domain, then they need
to log on to the correct domain before the shared application can be
run.

      A DOS LAN Requester Windows user normally logs on through the
Networks-Control panel.  Typically, a shared application is set up
and run from an individual program group.  DOS LAN Requester Windows
saves (at shared application installation time) the domain name of
where the shared application is defined.  This domain name is passed
as a parameter to RUNLSAPP.EXE to identify the domain that the user
needs to be logged on to in order to run the shared application.  If
it turns out that the shared application does not reside in the
current logon domain, or if the user is not logged on at all, then
the DOS LAN Requester Windows code automatically detects this
condition and prompts the user at that point to log on to correct
domain.

      By prompting the user and displaying the log-on panel at the
time the shared application is being run, DOS LAN Requester Windows
makes it as simple as possible for the user to access their shared...
