Client Auto-Update from 12 to 14

Hi,

probably I missed it, but I did not find it in the documentation:

Can the new Client Auto-Update feature be used to update from clients
version 12 and earlier to 14? Or do only the new clients ask the right
question to the POA?

We did not use SDDs and the (old) AutoUpdate feature before.

Thanks,
Mirko

Hi Mirko

Here's a documentation reference for you: https://www.novell.com/documentation/groupwise2014/gw2014_guide_admin/data/adm_cli_dist_client_autoupdate.html

To answer your question, Yes you can update from earlier clients [any earlier version] to 2014 using this procedure.

Let us know how it goes.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

This is what I have read - but I wasn't sure which client versions this
applies to.

Thanks, it works now. The problem I had was that for testing I wanted to
enable Auto-Update only for a few users, not the all the post office. This
seems not to be possible, Auto-Update needs to be enabled for the postoffice
*and* the user (which I think is not consistent with other Client Option
settings). If I want only a few users I could enable the post office, then
disable all but a few users - but this is a bit unhandy...

I created a test post office with two users, there it works.

Thanks,
Mirko

Hi Mirko

Auto-Update is an all-or-nothing feature. You can't do it on a user by user basis.

Re: Client Auto-Update from 12 to 14

Hi Mirko,

I have requested that the documentation gets updated to clearly state that the auto-update feature, if enabled, will affect all users on the Post Office and that you can not do it on a per user basis.

Hope that will assist other people in the same situation as you.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Re: Client Auto-Update from 12 to 14

I believe there is a bug opened on this, that you will be able to select a
client only. the issue is you cannot trigger the update.

I will look further into it and see what the status is...
