Novell ZENworks 10 Asset Management provides a variety of methods you can use to deploy the ZENworks Adaptive Agent to the devices you want to manage. This section covers two of the most common methods: a Web installation and a ZENworks Control Center deployment task. For information about the other methods, see the ZENworks 10 Discovery, Deployment, and Retirement Reference.
If you plan to use a deployment task to install the Adaptive Agent to devices, you must first either use network discovery or file import to add the target devices to your Management Zone. The first two sections listed below explain how to use network discovery and file import. The remaining section provides installation instructions for the ZENworks Adaptive Agent.
NOTE:If a device does not meet the requirements for installing the ZENworks Adaptive Agent (see ZENworks 10 Asset Management Installation Guide), you might be able to install the Inventory Only Module on it to support inventorying of the device. For more information, see the ZENworks 10 Discovery, Deployment, and Retirement Reference.
