Maybe I'm wrong and maybe I'm missing something here, but this "NAL Update Utility" seems like overkill! Here's how I update NAL files automatically without reboot.
I just use a Workstation Policy that has a custom action that runs at Scheduler startup. The action has three items:
"\\server\sys\public\winnt\nalntsrv install start" "\\server\sys\public\nal /i" "\\server\sys\public\nalexpld /i"
This seems to update all the NAL files on the workstation before the user logs in.
We also run "naldesk /noupdate" or "nalwin32 /noupdate" in our login scripts without any problems.
The idea for combining these came from a number of Novell TIDs.
