Group policy template for Novell Client for Windows 7

Does anyone know if there is a group policy template for the Novell Client for Windows 7? I find it really hard to believe that Novell has not yet released one, but I cannot find one anywhere. We use ZCM 11.2, and I really need to be able to send out settings for the client via a group policy.

By the way, I am also posting this on the Novell Client forum, but since this is also a ZCM thing, I am hoping I might get some feedback here.

RPummel,

no, Novell never officially did such a thing - I created the ADM for
client 4.91 years ago, but it took about a week of my time and I've
never had that much free time since then...

Yes, Shaun, and we have VERY much appreciated the effort you went to! I don't expect you to commit the time to do this again, but surely Novell would dedicate some resources to this? We have a huge need to be able to control the Novell Client settings on our Windows 7 machines.

You are not alone my friend, but for Shaun to be able to take time to
do this, it needs approval from TPTP.

The Powers That Be. Ie you need to ask for it through your local Novell
rep. This is so that the people that make the descisions understand
that there is a need for this.
