    Details

    Purpose: To affect a shutdown primarily to ensure User and System policies are consistently applied under ZENworks. It can also be used as a general tool to effect a shutdown/logoff for other reasons.

    Use: It can be run as a normal executable and permits the integrator to experiment with a number of modes. When the desired mode is identified the utility can be run behind an icon, shortcut or as a NAL application with the appropriate command line switch. For example Mode 1 'Logoff' equates to "Shut down all programs and login as a different user". e.g. C:\Novell\Client32\NCShtDwn /1 executes the Logoff without the user interface.

    Note: The 'Force' options don't allow for applications to save data before termination but conversely don't allow the user to interfere with the process either. It can also be attached to a screen saver to shutdown/logoff a workstation that is left 'logged in' but unattended (and therefore vulnerable) in sensitive environments.
