    Automatic Client Updater

    Hi,

    I'm having some problem finding solutions for the Automatic Client
    Updater that is packaged within Netware clients. I've been charged with
    the task of updating ver. 4.81 to 4.83 and I am having some difficulty
    with it.

    When I deploy the update on a test group I have to be logged in as an
    administrator, the error I am receiving is 'In order to use this program
    you must have Administrator rights on the workstation.' When I log in as
    an Administrator I receive the error 'Unable to locate files required for
    SETUPNW.EXE installation. (\\server\volume\directory\winnt\i386
    \nww2k.inf)'. My problem here is that I can't find this .inf file
    anywhere and I can't find a client download for 4.83.

    Does anyone know where I can find a client download for ver. 4.83 and is
    there a way that I can bypass the administrative requirements that is
    stopping my updates? Should I consider going to the 4.91 version?

    Thanks in advance,
    JeffH

    Hi Jeff

    I had a copy of the 4.83 Client - I've zipped it up and stuck it on my
    webserver - you can download it from;

    http://www.blackfen.bexley.sch.uk/temp/Client483.zip

    I can't think of any reasons why you shouldn't update to the latest
    4.91 Client (SP3 is the latest) - I haven't had any major issues with
    it, and it fixes quite a lot of glitches.

    How do you plan to roll out the update? I tried the Update Agent a
    while back, and wasn't overly impressed with the randomness of it - I
    use Zenworks, so use the Client Install Manager to set all the settings
    and an internal version number, and then force run "setupnw.exe /acu
    /u:unattend.txt" every time a user logs in. I've also had a lot of
    success associating this with workstation objects to deploy the client
    update before the user has logged in.
