PROBLEM:

Removing / uninstalling novell client from remote workstation in silent and unattended mode using ACU

SOLUTION:

Download the Novell Client from the Novell Download website

Extract it and copy the i368 folder into SYS:\PUBLIC directory. Make sure that you are copying the entire i368 folder.

Open ACU.INI from SYS:\PUBLIC\i386 Directory

DO the following changes in ACU.INI

[LaunchInstall]
Launch=Yes

[DisplayDialog]
Display=No

[Uninstall]
Client=Yes

Save the above file and then close it

Add the following line in the login script as per your requirement.

@//ServerName/SYS/PUBLIC/i368/ACU.EXE

If you want to do it for all users in the container then you can add above line in container login script. If it's just for 1 user then in the user login script and similarly for profile login script
