If, after installing both ZEN65 and ZEN7, you get a console message on your servers that says:

"The server DN is null. Wake on LAN service stopping abnormally"

you may want to check the name.

You may find that that the \zenworks\remmgmt\server\properties\wolconfig.properties file contains an entry of


for the RemoteMgmtServiceDN= entry. It should instead be:

CN=*WOL Service_.<*fullydistinguishedlocationofserver>.

Just edit the file and correct it, and you'll find that the Wake-on-LAN service starts right up.
