36.3 Device Management Settings

The Device Management section contains the following settings:

Local Device Logging: Configure logging of messages to a managed device’s local drive. You can determine what severity level messages are logged and when the log file is backed up. You can also determine what severity level messages are sent to the ZENworks server for viewing in ZENworks Control Center. For more information, see Local Device Logging.

Device Refresh Schedule: Specify how often a device contacts a ZENworks Server to update bundle, policy, configuration, and registration information. You can also specify what to do with a device when it has not contacted a ZENworks Server within a certain number of days. For more information, see Device Refresh Schedule.

ZENworks Agent: Configure uninstall and caching settings for the ZENworks Adaptive Agent as well as enable or disable specific Adaptive Agent modules. For more information, see ZENworks Agent.

Registration: Control the settings used when registering devices, including how registered devices are named, whether registration rules are enabled, and whether device objects in ZENworks Control Center can be renamed as they update their registration information. For more information, see Registration.

ZENworks Explorer Configuration: Configure common settings for ZENworks Explorer component of the ZENworks Adaptive Agent. You can select whether or not you want a bundle to be uninstalled after it is no longer assigned to a device or the device’s user. You can also rename the default folder in Windows Explorer, on the Start menu, and in the ZENworks Window where all bundles are placed. For more information, see ZENworks Explorer Configuration.

System Variables: Define variables that can be used to replace paths, names, and so forth as you enter information in ZENworks Control Center. For more information, see System Variables.

Preboot Services: Configure settings for devices that use Preboot Services. For more information, see Preboot Services.

Primary User: Determine how and when a device’s primary user is calculated. For more information, see Primary User.

Primary Workstation: Determine how and when a device’s primary workstation is calculated. You can also disable the calculation by selecting the None (do not calculate -- affects both Primary Workstation and Primary User) option. For more information, see Primary Workstation.

Dynamic Group Refresh Schedule: Determine how often a dynamic group’s criteria are applied to devices in order to update membership in the group. Membership in a dynamic group is determined by applying the dynamic group’s criteria to devices. If a device meets the criteria, it is added to the group; you cannot manually add devices to a dynamic group or remove them from a dynamic group. For more information, see Dynamic Group Refresh Schedule.

Wake-on-LAN: Configure the number of retry attempts to wake up a device and the time interval between the retry attempts. For more information, see Wake-on-LAN.

Remote Management: Configure Remote Management settings, which are a set of rules that determine the behavior or the execution of the Remote Management service on the managed device. For more information, see Remote Management.
