Windows 2000 SP4 Professional
Novell Client 4.90 SP2 with Update A
IP-only (names via SLP/NDS)

Kicking off the agent install off a NetWare volume or locally with an .MST on a few boxes
produces a generic ZENworks agent has failed to install message dialog. We've tried
shutting down all possibly interfering processes and services, reinstalling the Novell
Client and using different local Windows profiles.
Many other workstations that were setup with an identical ghost image install without
issue.

Via a shortcut or application object (using ZFD 3.2 SP3) application explorer...
C:\WINNT\system32\msiexec.exe TRANSFORMS="ZfDAgent.mst" /i "ZfDAgent.msi" /qb+

Looking up of the Windows Installer error codes produces equally generic explanations.
Are there any other troubleshooting steps or resources that I can take advantage of?

Here is the tail end of a verbose Windows Installer log of a failed run...

Any input is appreciated.
