3.2 Registering with a Key

Your device must be registered in a ZENworks Management Zone in order to be managed. To facilitate this process, your administrator can create registration keys. A registration key is alphanumeric string that you optionally supply to the ZENworks Agent during registration of the device in order to automatically be assigned bundles and policies associated with the key.

Your administrator might provide you with a key and ask you to register (or reregister) your device. To do so:

  1. Right-click the ZENworks icon ZENworks icon in the notification area, and select Technician Application.

  2. In the left navigation pane, click Agent.

  3. In the Registration Keys field, type the registration key, then click Register.

    The ZENworks Agent registers the device using the key you supplied.

    Registration keys are cumulative, which means that when you register with more than one key, the device receives the bundles, policies, and group assignments associated with each of the keys. Each key used for registration is added to the list for future reference.

    If you add a registration key to a device that is already registered in the Management Zone, the new key does not move the device to the folder specified by the new key.

    To move a device to another folder, in ZENworks Control Center, click the Devices tab, click Servers or Workstations, click the check box next to the device that you want to move, click Edit, click Move, click the desired folder, then click OK. Moving a device by using the ZCC retains the device’s existing assignments. You can also unregister then register the device, however, its existing assignments are removed.
