    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 have the clients
    configured to upgrade? Do I have to use the ACU method?

    I have yet to use the Client Update Service and gone with the ACU.

    I've found that the paths in ACU.INI are relative to where ACU.EXE is
    located.

    For simplicity keep the acu and unattend.txt files together under i386 in
    the install path.
    The ACU.INI file pointing to unattend.txt would have these lines...

    [UnattendFile]
    Use=Yes
    File=unattend.txt

    A few lines in the login script should take care of the rest...
