Suppress reboot after uninstalling the Novell Client

Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 2008 R2
Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 2012


When un-installing the Novell Client "silently" using the command line
rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files\Novell\Client\ncsetup.dll" NWUninstallClient /s
the machine reboots. Is it possible to suppress this re-boot of the machine?


It is not possible to suppress the reboot with any shipping Client.  The code path unconditionally executes the reboot at the end of the un-installation process; the /S parameter just determines whether there will be a prompt before the reboot occurs.
