17.2 Adding Imaging Applications as Firewall Exceptions

The ZENworks installation program cannot add exceptions to a Linux server firewall. Therefore, you must manually complete this task under the following conditions:

  • The Primary Server will be an Imaging Server.

  • The Primary Server will be the parent Primary Server of an Imaging Satellite Server.

If you turn on the firewall on the Primary Server, you must configure the server to allow the following ZENworks Configuration Management Imaging applications through the firewall by adding them to the Firewall Exceptions list:

  • novell-pbserv.exe

  • novell-proxydhcp.exe

  • novell-tftp.exe

  • novell-zmgprebootpolicy.exe

NOTE:After installing the server on Linux device, /opt/novell/zenworks/bin is not added to the PATH variable; therefore, the commands in that directory cannot be used directly. Do any of the following on the Linux device to run the commands from /opt/novell/zenworks/bin:

  • Log in to the device again.

  • Specify the complete path to access the command.

For example: /opt/novell/zenworks/bin/zac
