Current Version: ZENworks for Desktops 3

We asked the folks who deliver the ZENworks for Desktops 3 Advanced Technical Training (ATT) if they could share a few exclusive tips with us from the training they present, and they graciously agreed. Here's a way to keep your workstations operational while you Inventory them.

When the Inventory scanner runs on your workstations does it render the box unusable? Make the policy run as a low priority to use less threads:

  1. Go to the Workstation Package where the Inventory Policy is set. Go to the properties of the Inventory policy.
  2. Go to the Schedule tab and choose Advanced Settings.
  3. Under the Priority tab, set it to Below Normal.
