The ZENworks Adaptive Agent supports Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 devices. You can fully manage devices on which the Adaptive Agent is deployed. This includes distributing software, enforcing policies, remotely managing the device, and so forth. The ZENworks Control Center displays managed devices on the Device page’s Managed tab.

Deployment instructions for the Adaptive Agent are provided in Section 10.0, Deploying the ZENworks Adaptive Agent.
If a Windows device does not meet the requirements for deploying the Adaptive Agent (see ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Installation Guide for details), or if you want to inventory a Linux, NetWare, or Macintosh device, you can deploy the Inventory-Only module.
After you deploy the module, the device is added to the ZENworks database. The ZENworks Control Center displays inventoried-only devices on the Device page’stab.
