Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 7 (IR1a) - Sysprep OK?

Hi There,

I was google about sysprep and novell client and found the following:

Dangers of using SYSPREP after NICI has been installed

Is it applicable to Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 7 (IR1a) ?

I migrated all the workstations from XP to Windows 7 x64 Pro 2 months ago and the only problem I had so far is when the password required to be changed we had some problem for the new password to be applied but that's all and it happened with 4 or 5 users out of 40. Would it be because of that?

I plan to upgrade the client but it will not fix the issue if I understand correctly the article (the article mentions to uninstall > safe mode > del nici folder and so on). It will be a real pain if I have to do that for all workstations I've already migrated (40).

Thank you for your time and feedback,
OAKFND

I'll drop the question with my Novell contacts, as I don't have an office answer on this.

I can however give you my own experiences with using sysprep on Windows 7 on a base image that already has the Novell Client 2 (SP1 upto SP3) installed... I've not seen any NMAS issues, & "stuff" like universal policy enforcement & password changes, which are NMAS dependent, are handled normally.

Cheers,
Willem
