1.0 Basic Concepts

Device discovery is the process of adding workstation and server information to the ZENworks database so that you can use that information to automatically deploy the ZENworks Agent from a ZENworks Server to the devices. The following sections provide information to help you understand the discovery terminology and concepts:

Ensure that the Discovery Rights are enabled, which are required to perform discovery operation. For more information, see Discovery Rights in ZENworks Administrator Accounts and Rights Reference.

Also, the device discovery feature for agents is not applicable for a Mac platform. The agent on a Mac platform needs to be installed manually using a standalone installer.
