25.1 Editing Environment Registry Keys

After DAS is successfully installed, it initializes some registry keys. You must edit the registry keys to configure the system for your workstation.

To view and edit the registry keys:

  1. Click Start > Run, type RegEdit, then click OK. The Registry Editor is displayed.


  3. Modify the following keys to adapt the installation to your workstation environment:

    Key Name




    C:\Program Files\Novell\Securelogin\Desktop Automation Services\actions.xml

    The value is the default value.

    This is the pathname for the actions.xml file that defines the actions for the workstation.

    Use this key only when you are referring to an actions.xml file loaded locally to the workstation.

    If you are using a directory-based actions.xml file, set the key value to null (blank).





    This is the value of the fully distinguished name (DN) of an ARSControl object.

    This key is the object in the directory that stores the actions.xml file. It can be managed through Novell iManager.


    IP address of the directory: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    The default value is null.

    This value can be the tree name or the IP address of the eDirectory tree that contains the ARSControl object.

    Leave the key blank if the ConfigFile key is used with a locally installed actions.xml file on the workstation.

    NOTE:The tree name must be specified for DAS to access an ARSControl object.

    The server on which the object is residing must be SLP enabled.


    C:\Program Files\Novell\Securelogin\Desktop Automation Services\DASLog.txt

    The value is the default value.

    This is the path of DAS log file. If you do not want any log file to be generated on the workstation, set the LogFilePath to null (blank).

    The details of the log file dependon the log level that is set.



    The value is the default value.

    See Section 25.2, Logging and Error Notification for the possible settings for this value.
