The 32-bit Novell Client product brings the full power, ease of use, manageability, and security of eDirectory to Windows NT/2000/XP workstations. Novell Client for Windows NT/2000/XP fully supports NetWare® and eDirectory services and utilities on a Windows NT/2000/XP workstation, including integrated messaging, multiprotocol support, management, security, and file and print services.
The Novell Modular Authentication Service (NMAS) v2.7 and Novell International Cryptographic Infrastructure 22.214.171.124 for Windows are included in the Novell Client default installation. The NetIdentity Client 1.2.2 is available as an optional installation selection. Information regarding pre-configuring the Novell Client prior to installation is located in the Novell Client Installation Manager documentation.
Novell Client for Windows XP is compatible with some features of ZENworks® for Desktops 3.2. ZENworks for Desktops (ZfD) versions earlier than 3.2 (including ZfD2, ZfD 3.0, or ZENworks Starter Pack) do not support Windows XP. In order to administer Windows XP Group Policies, you must update your ConsoleOne® snap-ins.
For more information on ZENworks, refer to the ZENworks Web site. For ZENworks 3.2, read the ZENworks 3.2 Deployment Guide for issues regarding Novell Application Launcher and installation requirements. For ZENworks 4.x, read the ZENwork 4.0.1 Upgrade Guide.
