Novell Client 4.9 SP2 for Windows NT/2000/XP
ZENworks Install of Novell Client 4.9 SP2 as "Secure System User" fails.
ZENworks NT Impersonation
"Unsecure System User" works. The Client install works well with this method of deployment.
It fails on part 1 which is the file copy. The other sections nmas install, nici install complete successfully. To verify the installation failure, notice that the files in c:\windows\system32\netware do NOT get updated. Also, the version string on the top bar of the Novell Client may read "18.104.22.16840617" (or similar) instead of "4.9 SP2."
This problem is related to the way Microsoft handles the installation of a driver that is not signed in "non-interactive" mode. The Novell Client installation routine uses the Microsoft installer to complete the installation of the Client. As currently designed by Microsoft, it is not possible to install programs with unsigned drivers in non-interactive mode. See Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 840257.
Use "Unsecure System User" instead of "Secure System User."
