Fact

Novell Application Launcher (NAL) 3.0

Novell ZENworks for Desktops 2

Novell Client 4.8 for Windows NT/2000

Symptom

Error: "Could not configure workstation for application [application name]  Problem: Unable to access needed network resource [DS attribute name] D01E"

Applications will distribute fine, but will not run correctly.  

Change

Installed the 4.8 client with the NAL NT SERVICE selected as an install option.

Cause

The NALNTSRV.EXE (8/2/2000) in client 4.8 is to be used with ZFD 3 environments only.

Fix

Install the client without NAL NT SERVICE, or upgrade to ZFD 3 on the servers.

The NALNTSRV.EXE and ZENAPP32.DLL found in C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32 on the workstation need to match the dates and versions of the same files found at SYS\PUBLIC\WINNT.  If they do not match, the only way to correct the problem is to stop the Novell Application Launcher service running on NT or 2000, then copying the new files down from the server to the workstation.  An automated procedure for correcting this problem can be found in TID 10064727.
