By Jason Blackett, Novell Connection Magazine - March 2010
Here's an excerpt:
Novell ZENworks® Configuration Management is all about making your IT life easier, especially when it comes to managing your endpoints. The release of Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management SP3 focuses on three main areas that support the “make IT easier” theme: improved branch office support; authentication enhancements; and easier, faster and more cost-effective deployment of ZENworks Configuration Management through a virtual appliance deployment option.
Satellite Support Enhanced
The branch office support improvements in this support pack focus on ZENworks satellite servers, which are managed devices you can set up in your branch offices and other locations to perform roles normally performed by primary ZENworks servers. Such roles include authentication, information collection, content distribution and imaging. The improvements provided in Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management SP3 deal primarily with giving you greater flexibility, control and WAN bandwidth optimization for replicating content between your satellite and primary servers.
