29.0 Content Repository

Each ZENworks Server contains a content repository. The content repository stores all bundle, policy, Patch Management, Product Recognition Update (PRU) and system update content that has been replicated to the server and any images that have been captured and stored to the server.

ZENworks supports any filesystem to host the content repository, although each filesystem has advantages and limitations. For example, the XFS filesystem handles very large files, which can be an advantage, depending on the nature of the content in the repository.

The content repository is self-maintaining. Whenever you add a bundle or policy, the bundle or policy content is added to the appropriate content repositories based upon the replication settings. Whenever you remove a bundle or policy or change which servers host its content, the bundle or policy content is also removed from the appropriate servers.

If necessary, you can move the content repository to a different location. The following sections provide instructions:
