One thing we really dislike about the SonicWall SMA is that it's difficult to keep NetExtender updated on Windows clients. Sometimes updating to the latest SMA firmware requires a NetExtender update without warning. We've recently been told that if we install NetExtender using the .exe file directly from our SMA that it will auto-update, but we've always used the .msi file because we can script a silent install during our OS builds. So I have two questions:
- For existing NetExtender installs that used the .msi method, is there a way to get them auto-updating from our SMA?
- If we install future clients using the .exe, is there a way to script the installation for use with our OS and software deployment tasks?
