If you'd like to set workstation import server on per-container basis, much like the old ZEN 2 user policy used to work, here's how to do it.

  • Use login script to set environment variable.
  • Then, use force-run app object to deploy environment variable into wsimport server registry key

This was tested with ZEN 3.2 SP1

Supporting TID: http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/10058431.htm (The TID states it is for ZEN 3.0, so should work in it too).

Example

Step 1: Add to login script:
dos set ZENWSIMPORT="1.2.3.4"

Step 2: Make an app object and associate it to the container, like this:
