Hi Joe, 

Yes, there was an issue with it triggering on teh per user level. I had reported that when 2014 first came out.  It didn;t work at all. They only had it for teh PO or Domain Level.

Possible defect.. seems you have to Enable Auto Update at the PO level, then toggle it back off, for it to kick in on a per-user level. Tech support looking into it

I must be missing something.. but I'm trying to get a user to trigger an update of her client. Shes in a secondary domain/post office... running 2012 client. I went into her user account and did "Enable client update".. then went to the PO level and hit "Trigger update".. I did NOT "Enable update" at the PO level. 

My understanding is that should be enough to trigger her update, but it's not doing it. Any ideas?

Nevermind! Figured it out.. you have to create a second win32 folder and copy setup.cfg into that.
opt/novell/groupwise/agents/data/client/setup/win32/win32/setup.cfg

Now it's working as planned.. thanks!

I believe it was Paul who mentioned modifying and copying the setup.cfg and setup.ini files into /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/data/client/setup/win32 folder in order to make the auto-update (via POA) automatic without any user intervention. I'm attempting to do that now and it's not working.. when my test user attempts to open GroupWise, they are prompted with "There is new software available" (as expected) and clicks YES/OK. SetupIP starts copying files to %temp% and then they get the GroupWise Welcome screen with NEXT button waiting for them to push it. 

Setup.cfg has ShowDialogs=No, ShowProgress=Yes, and setup.ini has EnableLangDlg=N 

Am I missing something?
