Install the Java* Development Kit, version 1.5 or later, to create jobs and to compile a Java SDK client in the Orchestrator environment.The Orchestrator installer ships with a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) suitable for running Orchestrator jobs.
Components to write Python-based Job Description Language (JDL) scripts:
Eclipse version 3.2.1 or later. is the interface console accessed through the developer portal.
To expose full product functionality and access to all job examples, you should be provisioned with a 90-day trial license SKU. If not, you need to add additional example jobs to customize your setup profile to mirror a fully enabled Novell ZENworks Server. If you need to customize setup profile, go to
Tested Platforms and Installation Methods for the Orchestrator Server, Agent, and Clients in the Novell ZENworks Orchestrator 1.3 Installation and Getting Started Guide.
Set up your environment according to the guidelines outlined in
Planning the Installation. In general, the deployed Orchestrator Server requires 2 (minimum for 100 or fewer managed resources) to 4 gigabytes (recommended for more than 100 managed resources) of RAM. By default, the Orchestrator Server is configured to use 1 gigabyte of memory.
For Virtual Machine Management, you need a high-speed Gigabit Ethernet. For more information about network requirements, see
Tested Platforms and Installation Methods for Virtual Machine Management Components.
After you install and configure Orchestrator, start in the auto registration mode as described in
First Use of Basic ZENworks Orchestrator Components. As a first-time connection, the server creates an account for you as you set up a self-contained system.
IMPORTANT:Because auto registration mode does not provide high security, make sure you prevent unauthorized access to your network from your work station during development. As you migrate to a production environment, be certain that promiscuous mode is deactivated.
