Welcome to the ZENworks Cool Solutions Community
ZENworks Cool Solutions
Deciding how to upgrade your aging ZCM hardware or the best method to move the server from Linux to Windows can be complicated. So let me try to make it easier for you, but first please do some pushups or jumping jacks. I want your mind to be sharp and full of oxygen.
As your systems grow and complexity increases so does the size of your log files – analysing such files with ZEDCM is simplicity itself. Most engineers use word processors or simple editors like Notepad to view their log files in the early days but as the file size grows things tend to become more difficult. The ZEDCM Log Viewer was designed to solve this problem by an engineer who no longer had the time to parse the logs line by line and hope that he didn’t miss something along the way.
The Novell Technical Training webinar for the month of July was held today. The three sessions were recorded for you to view at your convenience. To access the recordings visit the links below:

Here's a common newbie question: how to get started with ZENworks Configuration Management, and plan your first zone.
If you have the asset management responsibility in your enterprise and you're using or thinking of using Novell ZENworks Asset Manager, Novell is offering this course online from July 19 - 21.
If you're not the asset manager but you know the asset manager, do that person a favor and let them know about this class.
The Content Synchronization Status Report Set is a set of useful reports to know about the status of your content on each of the available content servers. They also provide a graphical view of the content synchronization status. However, the reports currently work against the Sybase database. We have modified the reports to work with MSSQL database as well.
In ZCM when specifying a "Launch Executable" action you can specify success return codes. These are codes that an executable (i.e. notepad.exe) will return when the executable is finished.
This is all great except that it can be difficult knowing what return code was returned. This executable will report the return code so that you can easily add the value to the "Success Return Code" values.
This is a very simple executable that will run on any OS. Using it is as simple as launchReturnCode.exe notepad.exe.

Highlights from Course 3113, Part 2: Using Change Management in ZENworks 11 Configuration Management
Here are some highlights from Course 3113, Section 5: Using Change Management.
This is part 1 of 5 parts I plan to post about Course 3113 over the next couple weeks. The course is called "Upgrading to and Exploring New Features in Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management." It's 3 days worth of content so I can't share it all here, but I can highlight some of the most interesting parts.
Phil C. asked about joining a virtual appliance to an existing management zone. It's all covered in the documentation.
Installing ZCM 11 Cumulative Patch 1 can be a bit daunting and also prone to error. So I created an installer utility that handles this.
The installer creates a backup and installs the new files. It also creates the system bundles and rebuilds the System Update.
The installer runs on both Windows and Linux servers making the process simple and easy.
First, I want to thank you all for the tremendous response to the Course 3114 beta class. We were able to register enough people to fill the class in only a few hours, far exceeding our expectations. The interest in this course is very encouraging! Thanks!
Do you need training on Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 8? We have a course coming up soon that will take from installation and deployment to integration with ZCM 10 and creating virtual applications from scratch.
This is two full days of training that starts on June 6th. It will be delivered online so you can participate from your home or office, whichever works best for you.
Evolving Efficiency: Moving from Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management to Novell ZENworks 11 for Greater IT Efficiency
Here's a new Novell Connection magazine article by Jason Blackett. Learn how ZENworks Configuration Management 11 will increase the efficiency of your IT department and the productivity of your users.
One of the more tricky hurdles our team had to overcome in our migration from Windows XP to Windows 7 in a ZENworks environment was to figure out how we were going to get ConsoleOne working on our Windows 7 workstations.
The best way to make sure that the course we've built works for the intended audience, is to open the doors for a free beta class, which will be taught online by one of our own ATT instructors. We would like as much feedback as possible to help us put the finishing touches on the content and the exercises.
