System Update Entitlement

This panel displays the System Update entitlement status and allows you to activate the System Update entitlement for the ZENworks software in the Management Zone to receive the latest version of ZENworks System Updates and Product Recognition Updates (PRUs) from the Novell Customer Center (NCC) server.

In ZENworks 11 or later, you need to activate the System Update entitlement to obtain updates to the ZENworks software on a timely basis. Before activating the entitlement, ensure that the Primary Server you want to use to activate the entitlement can communicate with the NCC server.

To activate the entitlement:

  1. Click the Configure link next to the Entitlement State option.

    The Configure System Update Entitlement dialog box is displayed.

  2. Configure the following settings:

    • Email Address: Specify a valid e-mail address to be used for communication from Novell. We recommended that you specify the e-mail address used to purchase the System Update Maintenance Entitlement.

    • Activation Code: Specify the System Update entitlement activation code.

    To purchase the System Update Maintenance Entitlement, contact an authorized Novell Sales representative or a Certified Novell Partner.

  3. Click Activate.

    The specified information is validated with the NCC server, and subsequently the entitlement is created for the Management Zone in the NCC server.
