File Details for Patch
Associated Product/Version: BindView Password Self Service v8.00
Release Date: May 26, 2006

Hotfix 116
BindView Password Self Service 8.00
Uninstalling DirectLogin does not restore the old GINA.

-- Particulars --
When DirectLogin is uninstalled, it always restore the default Microsoft GINA DLL (MSGINA.DLL). If another GINA application was installed before the DirectLogin, then it needs to be uninstalled and installed back again in order to restore the GINAL DLL of that application e.g., Novell NetWare Client (NWGINA.DLL).


When DirectLogin is installed, DirectLogin setup will preserve the old GINA settings that was installed prior to DirectLogin. This enables DirectLogin setup to restore the old GINA DLL or the default Microsoft GINA DLL when the DirectLogin is uninstalled.
How to apply the Hotfix:
Install the hotfix on Bindview Password Self Service Server. This will update the DirectLogin package on the server. In addition, this will also update the INI file 'pssurlfile.ini' in order to add a new key 'RevertBackToPrevGINA' under the section 'PSS_DIRECTLOGIN'. Set this key to 'Yes' to restore the old GINA DLL or set this to 'No' to restore the default Microsoft GINA DLL (MSGINA.DLL). By default it is set to 'No'. After updating the INI file redeploy DirectLogin package using GPO (Group Policy Objects).

The 'pssurlfile.ini' file is located at ':\Program Files\BindView\Password Self Service\DirectLogin\Password Self Service DirectLogin'.
