The Client Install Manager (nciman.exe) lets you generate a properties file, used by the Client install utility (setup.exe or acu.exe), to configures the Client Property Page settings during installation. You can create different properties files for different groups of workstations and specify their use by indicating the name of the desired file at the command line. For more information, see Creating the Client Properties File.
The Client Install Manager is located in C:\Micro Focus\Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR3)\Admin (created when you unzipped the Client download file).
The Client Properties file must be copied to the root directory of the Client build (C:\Micro Focus\Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR3)) before installation. NovellClientProperties.txt is the default filename, but you can save a properties file with any name you want.
