updating clients-client upgrade agent or ACU?

I have 200 computers with 4.90 clients and some with 3.4 w98 clients.
I have just moved our servers to 6.5 and want to update the clients
automatically. The clients currently are not set to update automatically.
I can get the Novell Client Upgrade Agent to work, but the only way I can
do so, is to go to each computer and set the client's properties to
upgrade, then click on the "upgrade client" link on the client. Then, it
works but I would like to be able to do this without having to go out to
each computer.
How can I accomplish this since I currently don't have the clients
configured to upgrade? Do I have to use the ACU method?

Re: updating clients-client upgrade agent or ACU?

I have yet to use the Client Update Service and gone with the ACU.

I've found that the paths in ACU.INI are relative to where ACU.EXE is

For simplicity keep the acu and unattend.txt files together under i386 in
the install path.
The ACU.INI file pointing to unattend.txt would have these lines...


A few lines in the login script should take care of the rest...
