Check out a new exclusive utility for ZENworks for Desktops users (from the LogicSource team)! This tool is included in the July release of the Novell Professional Resource Suite.

What could simplify your life? The talented minds behind LogicSource have created ZEN Logger, an outstanding new ZENworks tool. Available through the Subscriber Portal since June 1, 2003, ZEN Logger is now shipping on CD. You can use ZEN Logger to troubleshoot and configure the ZENworks for Desktops 4 and 4.01 workstation agent component on Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows XP. For example, you can configure ZENworks settings-including (but not limited to) policy retrieval, Rogue Process Management and inventory settings. In fact this invaluable tool gives you access to virtually all workstation agent settings-70% of which aren't published through any other tool.

In addition, ZEN Logger displays version information for key files, including the workstation agent file. This color-coded versioning feature greatly simplifies the troubleshooting process. These and other useful features make ZEN Logger a convenient, single tool for configuring all of the built-in logging found in the workstation agent.

NOTE: ZEN Logger is available on CD for Novell Professional Resource Suite subscribers in the July release. (It will eventually go in ZEN for Desktop toolkit subscribers September release).

This tool is designed to help you in troubleshooting and configuring the ZENworks for Desktops 4 and 4.01 workstation agent component on Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows XP. It is a single place for configuring all of the built in logging found in the workstation agent. Additionally, several undocumented features are exposed via the tool making it easy to harness the power of these features. Many of these features are documented in TID's but this gives you a single standalone tool that you can use to configure the agent components of ZENworks for Desktops 4 and 4.01.

To install this product you need to have the following:

  • Windows NT/2000/XP
  • ZENworks for Desktops 4 or higher agent

If you do not have the .NET framework installed you should use the .EXE version of the installation, otherwise you can use the .MSI file. The .EXE will automatically install the .NET framework.
