NetWare 6.5 officially began shipping last week and Novell has just released ZENworks updates for NetWare 6.5. These updates allow ZENworks 6, ZENworks for Desktops 4.0.1 and ZENworks for Servers 3.0.2 to run on the updated NetWare 6.5 server platform. Without these updates, ZENworks will not run with NetWare 6.5.

There are two exceptions to this update support:

  • ZENworks for Desktops 4.0.1 Middle Tier is not supported on NetWare 6.5; customers should instead use a NetWare 6.0 server for hosting the ZENworks for Desktops 4.0.1 Middle Tier server.
  • The newer version of ConsoleOne - ConsoleOne 1.3.6 - is not supported with ZENworks 6. Customer should continue to use ConsoleOne 1.3.5 and snapins; ConsoleOne 1.3.5 is available on the ZENworks companion CD sets.
  • Here are some Platform Updates you should apply to make sure you can use ZENworks as you begin rolling out your NetWare 6.5 on your servers.
