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.
Here's a common newbie question: how to get started with ZENworks Configuration Management, and plan your first zone.
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.
