We recently upgraded from ZENworks for Desktops 3.2 to 6.5. I began pushing out ZENworks Agents with the 3.2 NAL on the older server and realized that none of my policies were working. Especially the critical DLU.
- Create an app that would remove the problem file: %systemroot%\system32\zenpol32.dll
- Place in your login script the ability to check for the new ZENworks agent. If it is not there the NAL should run from 3.2 and force the new agent out.
- Force a reboot with the Agent App.
If FileExists("c:\Program Files\Novell\Zenworks\naldesk.exe") Then exit Else Run("\\hs\sys\public\nalwin32.exe", "", @SW_HIDE) EndIf
