Goal

Unattend Remove of the Novell Client for Windows NT.

Symptom

How can the Novell Client for Windows NT be removed without using Network Services TAB in control panel?

Goal

Is there removal method for the Novell NT Client similar to unc32.exe that is available with the Novell Windows 95/98 client?

Fix

The NT client can be removed using setupnw and unattend.txt with the DoInstall=YES in the [NovellNetWareClientParameters] section and !DoRemove=YES command in the [NovellNetWareClientParameters] section and each of the component sections of the unattended file.

This was tested using the NT 4.51 Client.

Requiring both DoInstall and DoRemove may seem like you are telling it to install the client and then remove it. However, in order to force the install to call down into the INF, the DoInstall must be YES. Once it is down in the INF, the INF looks at the DoRemove to see if an install or remove should be done.

Use the following setupnw syntax to remove the NT client: setupnw /u:<path to unattend.txt>. Following is a working unattend.txt that will remove the client. Cut and past this example unattend.txt into an editor to create the unattend.txt.
