Client version

Is there any way to check what version a computer is using? I mean w/o
going from machine to machine & manually checking?

Any report, etc that can be used to check the Novell client version of
someone that's logged in?

Try the login script variable REQUESTER_VERSION

Novell has a new enhancement request system,
or what is now known as the requirement portal.
If customers would like to give input in the upcoming

Anders Gustafsson sounds like they 'said':

> Try the login script variable REQUESTER_VERSION


So my response to Anders's comment is...

Thanks, that's good to know, but I'm wondering more along the lines of
seeing it in imanager, C1, somewhere other than from a users's computer.

That information is not recorded outside of the PC concerned unless an app actively goes in and queries it. So you could set up something in the login script that read that variable and wrote it somewhere, but more normally that'd be the job of the Zenworks suite.

No. But it is fairly easy to call a a batchfile that exports it along with
the MAC address or user name to a file...

You could just put the upgrade in the login script and bring everyone to
the current version, and then you'd know 🙂
