How do I enable software updates to be installed for users who are not administrators of their machines ? I'm told it might be enabled by editing the etc/authorization file on the server. If so, I would appreciate some pointers. It is not obvious on inspection of the file.

I'm using an environment with multiple Xserves. My users are on Xserve1, but my Apple Updates are on Xserve2. I presume it matters which authorization file I edit?

    Change the file so that the session owner has the system.install.admin.user and system.install.root.user rights; see system.login.screensaver for an example of how to set it up. This is done on the computer which the users are on.
