Client Upgrade (ACU) b4 ZfD4 Install

I'm preparing our workstations before we deploy ZfD4.0.1 and am
on using ACU to roll out Novell Client 3.4 and 4.9 for our Windows 
98/XP/2000 workstations.

As part of the ACU process I am only choosing NDPS in the additional 
components section. If Workstation Manager is already installed on the

workstations should I choose to disable this or leave it enabled?

Once the ACU has completed we will then install ZfD4.0.1 and then roll
the ZfD Management Agent via NAL.

Is the above the best way of preparing workstations for our

Cheers, Chris.

if you're not currently using an earlier version of Zen, then it
doesn't matter, since the Agent install will replace the ZfD3.2 
components installed by the client, with nice new shiny ZfD4.x

Roll out Management Agent B4 ZfD4 Install?
Hi, Found this suggestion on Cool Solutions regarding the best order for preparing workstations: Do the client first and then the agent. Reboot in between. Add in your login script to check and see if the ZFD4 mgmt agent is already installed. If it is then don't launch the old nal from the server. REGREAD "HKLM,SOFTWARE\Novell\Workstation Manager,Registration Agent" IF "%99" <> "zenwsreg.dll" THEN @\\"servername"\sys\public\nalexpld ENDIF My question is, can I roll out the management agent to workstations before I upg...

updating clients-client upgrade agent or ACU?
I have 200 computers with 4.90 clients and some with 3.4 w98 clients. I have just moved our servers to 6.5 and want to update the clients automatically. The clients currently are not set to update automatically. I can get the Novell Client Upgrade Agent to work, but the only way I can do so, is to go to each computer and set the client's properties to upgrade, then click on the "upgrade client" link on the client. Then, it works but I would like to be able to do this without having to go out to each computer. How can I accomplish this since I currently don't ha...

client upgrade with ACU
Can I create an app that will allow users to upgrade the client from the Delivered Applications Launcher? I have tried but it will not run. It says it cannot find the path specified. I can run the same path through the "run" command just fine. I want to use the ACU and unattended.txt file, the app won't run with or without the ACU switch. Users need XP Admin rights if I run it from the login scripts. Thanks, JCE. I forgot to mention that this happens when I run as secure or unsecure system user, but if I run normal I still need XP Admin rights. JCE > Can I cre...

Hi, I am wanting to set up an automatic client upgrade in my login script but I have a few systems that need to stay with the windows NetWare client (due to the Novell client killing some legacy software).

Groupwise Client Zenworks Install
So, probably to start an old topic, but I can't get zenworks to install the client if the user doesn't have local admin rights. I had the same problem on Groupwise 7 too.

Upgraded Client using ACU
I am rolling out a client update to 4.91 SP2. Fortunately, I tested it with the IT container only. When the update is performed, if I don't have the Scripts Tab checked, the container login script will not run.

Client upgrade + NDPS install
We installed Client 4.90SP1 without NDPS (using iPrint on the clients). Now for some problems with iPrint in combination with some printerdrivers, we want to use NDPS on the clients. We tried to update 4.90SP1 to 490SP2 with NDPS using ACU in the login script. This upgrades the client, but does not install NDPS. Where can we forct to install the NDPS part with a client upgrade? Or can it only upgrade what is already installed, and do we have to upgrade/install manually again. I understand that using ZfD for client upgrade with a package is not the recommended way. Any suggestions?...

Client upgrade
We have 4.91 SP2c client right now Want/need to upgrade to SP4 Which is better to do: acu.exe or setupsp.exe acu.exe has been wrotten especially to make things easier for you. With a proper acu.ini, acu.exe can aumtoatically decide whether it needs to run setupnw.exe for a client version upgrade or just setupsp.exe for a support pack install. As such, I would consider using au.exe easier and safer because it will also handle older clients that might exist on your network without you knowing. -- Marcel Cox (Sysop) Discover the new Novell forums at
