Here's the latest on the NAM 3.0 front. To download the update, go to TID-2965725.

The download contains updated files for the Platform Receiver, Scripts and the Novell Client32 Intercept Unattended install on a Windows server (whew).

This patch is installed on top of Account Management 3.0 SP1.

How To

AD - scripts (not for Windows 2000 standalone servers)
Change to the c:\novell\asam\bin\PlatformServices\PlatformReceiver\scripts directory Rename the file ASAM.VBS to ASAM.OLD. Copy in the new ASAM.VBS file from this patch to the directory. It is located in the directory where the patch was extracted to under the SCRIPTS\AD sub-directory.

Domain - Scripts (for NT domains and Windows 2000 standalone servers)
Change to the c:\novell\asam\bin\PlatformServices\PlatformReceiver\scripts directory Rename the file CHECK.WSF to CHECK.OLD. Copy in the new CHECK.WSF file from this patch to the directory. It is located in the directory where the patch was extracted to under the SCRIPTS\DOMAIN sub-directory.

Client32 Intercept Unattended Installation
In the README.HTML for Account Management 3.0 SP1 there is a link for doing an unattended install of the Password Intercept. The link is called AM300SP1_CLIENT32_INTERCEPT_UNATTENDED.EXE. This patch contains an updated AM300SP1_CLIENT32_INTERCEPT_UNATTENDED.EXE that should be used rather than the one linked in the readme.

Windows Platform Receiver
Stop the ASAMRCVR service in Windows Services. Change to the C:\NOVELL\ASAM\BIN\PLATFORMSERVICES\PLATFORMRECEIVER directory. Rename the file ASAMRCVR.EXE TO ASAMRCVR.OLD. Copy in the new ASAMRCVR.EXE from the patch to the directory. It is located in the directory where the patch was extracted. Restart the service.

What Changed

AD - Scripts
Fixed problem in Asam.vbs with it not recognizing the wildcard in asamwin.conf file. Symptoms of the problem were users being move to the user container of AD when being added to a group.

Domain - Scripts
Fixed problem in Check.wsf that wouldn't allow a asam managed group to be recreated if deleted from the domain.

Client32 Intercept Unattended Installation
Fixed problem in the Client32 Intercept Unattended Installation where the setup program would not execute if launched from a network drive as opposed to a local workstation drive.

Windows Platform Receiver
SP1 has a bug that always forces on (Windows) User must change password on next login if you are not synchronizing password expiration information. Password expiration information is not synchronized by default.
