Novell ZENworks 11 SP2 supports Microsoft’s ImageX and Symantec Ghost 11.5 third-party imaging tools. ImageX takes the image in the WIM file format and Ghost takes the image in the GHO file format.
After you perform a ZENworks upgrade, for Third-Party Imaging to work properly, re-upload the winpe.wim, imagex.exe, and ghost.exe files from the Third Party Imaging Settings page in the ZENworks Control Center.
For Full Disk Encrypted systems, images cannot be taken and restored by using the ImageX and Ghost third-party tools.
Currently, only PXE is supported as the boot mechanism for third-party Imaging. Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) is an Intel specification that allows a device to boot from the network, instead of its hard drive or other local media. Configuration Management can use PXE to launch Preboot Services.
