    Update Client for Non-administrator users using login script

    I am trying to update the clien 4.91 sp2 to sp3. The majority of my
    users are regular users that don't have administrator rights. I am using
    the login scrip to update, but it gives me an error when trying to update
    with non administrator users. Does anybody know how can I manage to
    resolve this problem???

    Thanks,

    Horacio

    Same here, that is the most idiotic thing to do
    Require admin rights to update such vital piece

    Almost like Novell expected miracles from us admins

    Admin-rights are needed for standalone install because of security
    issues. Users should not be able to install something as strong as
    novell client (or service pack to it).

    Not miracles. Novell client has "automatic update agent". If you use
    that clients are easy to upgrade. If you have more than handful of
    machines I strongly suggest learning how to use that. It saves a lot of
    work.
