problem:

Upgrading to a newer version of GroupWise and want to push out the application so that you don't have to touch each machine.

solution:

You can create a snAppShot of the new install and associate it to all the users who need it. This is a fast and easy way to get your user up to date with GroupWise.

The snAppShot is associated to each individual teacher, administrator, and tech. Once that person logins into Novell the ZENworks Application Manager will search for any Apps that need to be run. It will find the GroupWise App and begin to run it (This should be only seconds after the machine is completely up).

The only thing that the user will see will be a progress bar. After the app is loaded then the progress bar goes away and you should have your GroupWise Icon on the screen.
