ACU or Update Agent

I'm in the process of setting auto update. I decided to launch ACU from a login script. Seems to work fine, but, what if I want to change only some Client Properties? I can change the property in the unattend.txt file but ACU doesn't pick up on this, I assume, because it detects the client doesn't need to be updated. Then I thought using the Update Agent would be the way to go. But in the documentation I've read it says the Update Agent launches ACU, so wouldn't I have the same problem. So the question is...what is the best way to get Client Properties pushed out when the client doesn't need to be updated?

NW6.5.3, XP sp2, 4.91 sp2

Re: ACU or Update Agent

Mike,

You may just want to configure the client with Group Policy or merging a
registry file...

Re: ACU or Update Agent

If you are using Client v4.91 and later, the update agent provides the
ability to distribute settings from an unattend file created using
nciman.exe. To enable the feature, copy the \i386\admin\cuagent.ini to the
i386 and modify the [Client Settings] section to designate the unattend
file.
