Novell Cool Solutions: Tip

We have heard from several ZENworks 6.5 SP1 customers who are confused by the changes to the processes they're used to following when doing Imaging.

The confusion stems from this key change, as outlined in the documentation: ZENworks 6.5 SP1 and earlier use the init process to perform the imaging. All ZENworks imaging processing is performed within the linuxrc process. For this reason, some of the standard processes you are familiar with do not work or exist in ZENworks imaging beginning with SP2.

We recommend you study this section of the documentation for a high-level overview of a Linux boot process and how ZENworks 6.5 SP2 imaging affects it. >
