3.2 Configuring the Location Awareness Mode for the Zone

You can configure the Location Awareness mode at the zone level, device folder level, and device level. The mode you set at the zone level applies to all devices unless it is overridden at the device folder level or device level.

To configure the Location Awareness mode for the zone:

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click Configuration to display the Configuration page.

  2. In the Management Zone Settings panel, click Device Management, then click ZENworks Agent to display the ZENworks Agent page.

  3. In the Agent Location Awareness panel, select the mode you want:

    • Location Awareness Lite: The agent uses network information provided by the operating system. This mode has limitations that the full Location Awareness mode does not. See Location Awareness Lite Limitations for details.

      If you use Location Awareness Lite mode and a device also has ZENworks Endpoint Security Management installed and enabled, the device uses Location Awareness mode instead. This occurs because ZENworks Endpoint Security Management and Location Awareness mode use the same ZENworks drivers. The agent detects that the drivers are installed and automatically switches to full Location Awareness mode, regardless of the mode setting.

    • Location Awareness: The agent installs ZENworks drivers to collect network information. The drivers provide more detailed information than the operating system, which enables the agent to make a more accurate determination of the location.
