ZENworks Imaging is the best tool for imaging. I tried to make it just a little bit better for our environment and thought my solution could be helpful for other people struggling with it. So I made a simple menu which starts with ZENworks Imaging.

You just have to follow TID 10070811.

mv linux.2 > linux.gz
gzip -d linux.gz
mkdir /zen
mount -o loop linux /zen
cd /zen/bin

Now add this line to the prompt.s file ( /bin/ )

exec /bin/menu

Now create your menu and call the file menu and place it in the bin directory.

umount /zen
gzip -9c linux > linux.gz
mv linux.gz > linux.2

Example of menu:

#!/bin/bash
while [ "$input" != "0" ]
do
clear

echo "##################################"
echo "          Image menu"
echo "##################################"
echo ""
echo ""
echo "[1] Download image"
echo "[2] Restore ONLY C: Drive"
echo "[5] Create Image"
echo "[0] quit"
read input

case $input in 

"3" )
hdparm -d1 /dev/hda

img mp %ipadres% %uncpath%/image.zmg 
reboot
break
;;

hdparm -d1 /dev/hda

img rp %ipadres% %uncpath%/image.zmg a1:p1

hdparm -d1 /dev/hda

img pc2 ntfs

reboot
break

ash -rcfile /bin/bashrc
