ZENworks: Beyond the Documentation
Novell Cool Solutions: Tip
Digg This -
Posted: 27 Jun 2005
The ZENworks documentation does what it set out to do: show you how to install, configure and administer the various products in the ZENworks suite - it's absolutely necessary to have this good reference material. What the documentation does not do, is tell you why you should configure something a particular way, or the consequences of getting it wrong! The articles on this page are designed to help you see beyond the documentation: how best to design your ZENworks implementations, how to use Best Practice techniques, and how to avoid common pitfalls. ZENworks is a uniquely powerful toolbox: its flexibility means that there are a myriad ways of solving your problems, and hopefully this series of articles will help you to choose the best options for your organization.
We hope you find this information useful; enjoy reading, and please use the feedback to suggest improvements, or other subjects you'd like to see covered: we don't promise to cover them all, but it doesn't hurt to ask!
