I am testing out an app object that changes the local adminstrator password.  I used Paul Pedron's cool solution [http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tip/15516.html#jamesf found here] The suggestion was to have the 'path to executable file' as %*WINSYSDIR%\NET.exe, and the 'parameters' as USER Administrator <password>This works great, however anyone who might happen to look at this object would know the local admin password for all the workstations! Is there any way to hide that?  Thanks!

I am trying to update the Path environment variable on Windows 2000 machines through Zenworks.  I want the changes to be permanentI need to delete one path, and add two more.  I have tried making an application object and putting the two paths to be added in the 'Environment variables' section - appending to the 'Path' variable with a ; separatorI checked the Path value, and it had not been updated. Any thoughts on how this can be done?  Thanks!

Got a nagging question you'd like to get help from the community about? That, my friend, is the very reason the Cool Solutions Wiki was started. Come on in, post your question, and see who pops forth with an article about it.


I took the liberty of posting some previously Novell internal notes and guides on ZENworks on my [Evil ZEN Scientist blog].

While I'm at it - who else blogs or writes about ZENworks?

Blogging about ZENworks


How about a Cool Solutions for the following that still plague me:

1) Automatic uninstall of Microsoft Client for Windows Networks 2) Automatic uninstall of File/Printer sharing, Win XP


I am trying to update the Path environment variable on Windows 2000 machines through Zenworks. I want the changes to be permanent. I need to delete one path, and add two more. I have tried making an application object and putting the two paths to be added in the 'Environment variables' section - appending to the 'Path' variable with a ; separator. I checked the Path value, and it had not been updated. Any thoughts on how this can be done? Thanks!
