ACU and Patchs

Hi,

I try to set up an automatic update for the Novell Client. Right now my first tests work fine but I need help for some tweaking to make everything work smoothly

1) How to make the client installation run silently ? I have update the acu.ini and create an unattend.txt file.
2) How can I force the ACU to install patches like Login Patch, or any security patch that novell make available ? I put the modified files over the original client file but for ACU it still the same version.

Enough for now. 🙂 Any help will be very appreciated.

Regards

Patrick

When using nciman to create your unattend.txt file, uncheck the option
"display initial screen" and check the option "Accept license agreement".
In ACU.INI, make sure you have the option "Display" set to "No" and don't
use the administrator message option and make sure acu.ini correctly
points to your unattend.txt file.

copy the patches in the correct directories of the client installation
files and the client install will install the patches. Note that it will
not automatically recognize the presence of the patches and so you need to
increment your internal version number for the client so that the client
is installed again with the patches.
