PROBLEM: We have a problem with ZENWorks 6.5 Imaging in a clustered environment. Because we do not use dhcp in our network, we are forced to create a linux-partition on every workstation we want to deploy an image to or create an image from.
We have configured the server-package to deploy images automatically to all workstations which connect to the ZENWorks imaging server with a certain IP-Address. But when a workstation which has this IP-Address starts linux, the message "no work to do" appears every time we boot the machine.
The name of our cluster-pool-server object was too long. It was "CLUSTER_CLUSTER_POOL_SERVER".
- First create an alias of your cluster-pool-server object with a short name, for example "cl_img".
- Second edit the file "ZFDStart.ncf". At the end of this file you will find an entry similar to the following:
load CLUSTERVOL:\system\imgserv "-s:cluster_cluster_pool_server.your_OU.your_O" "-i:192.168.xxx.xxx" -y
change this entry to:
load CLUSTERVOL:\system\imgserv "-s:cl_img.A_Cluster.Herzzentrum" "-i:192.168.250.73" -y
- Third restart ZENWorks.
ZENworks Imaging should now work.
