Update Client for Non-administrator users using login script

I am trying to update the clien 4.91 sp2 to sp3. The majority of my
users are regular users that don't have administrator rights. I am using
the login scrip to update, but it gives me an error when trying to update
with non administrator users. Does anybody know how can I manage to
resolve this problem???

Thanks,

Horacio

Re: Update Client for Non-administrator users using login script

Same here, that is the most idiotic thing to do
Require admin rights to update such vital piece

Almost like Novell expected miracles from us admins

Admin-rights are needed for standalone install because of security
issues. Users should not be able to install something as strong as
novell client (or service pack to it).

Not miracles. Novell client has "automatic update agent". If you use
that clients are easy to upgrade. If you have more than handful of
machines I strongly suggest learning how to use that. It saves a lot of
work.
