1.1 Modifying Configuration Settings at the Zone

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click the Configuration tab.

  2. In the Management Zone Settings panel, click the settings category (Content, Device Management, Discovery and Deployment, Event and Messaging, and so forth) whose settings you want to modify.

  3. Click the setting to display its details page.

  4. Modify the setting as desired.

    For information about the settings, click the Help button in ZENworks Control Center or see the following sections:

  5. When you have finished modifying the setting, click OK (or Apply) to save your changes.

    If the configuration setting applies to devices, the setting is inherited by all devices in the zone unless the setting is overridden at a folder level or a device level.

    By default, Management Zone settings are cached on the ZENworks Server and the cache is updated every 10 minutes. Because of this, if a change is made to a zone setting, devices don’t receive the changes until the next cache update, which might be as long as 10 minutes.

    If you change any of these settings and you want to apply them immediately to a device, you must use the zac command line utility on the device to bypass the ZENworks Server cache and retrieve the new settings. To do so, run the following command on the device:

    zac ref general bypasscache
