4.0 Managing and Monitoring ZENworks Appliance

After deploying ZENworks Virtual Appliance 11 SP2 (ZENworks Appliance), you can manage and monitor it by using the pre-installed applications such as YaST and GNOME System Monitor. The YaST Control Center allows you to administer and maintain the preinstalled customized SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 JeOS (SLES 11 SP1) by configuring hardware, setting up networks and services, and so on. The GNOME System Monitor allows you to monitor the programs and processes running on your computer, assess the activity of running processes, view the disk space usage, and so on.

NOTE:VMware tools are installed automatically with ZENworks Virtual Appliance.

To manage and monitor ZENworks Appliance through the YaST Control Center and GNOME System Monitor:

  1. Log in to ZENworks Appliance as a root user.

  2. (Conditional) If you want to manage ZENworks Appliance, from the desktop Computer menu, click Applications > System > YaST.

    The YaST Control Center is displayed.

    For more information on how to work with the YaST Control Center, see System Configuration in the SLES 11 Deployment Guide.

  3. (Conditional) If you want to monitor ZENworks Appliance, double-click the GNOME System Monitor icon desktop shortcut.
