ZENworks Configuration Management - Best Practices Guide

Welcome to the ZENworks 11 SP3 Best Practices Guide. In this guide you learn the best practices for deploying and managing the core ZENworks infrastructure and the ZENworks Configuration Management product. To help you better understand what each of the administrators in your organization must consider, this document is broken up by administrator roles so that the person in your organization who is responsible for that role can read only that section. If you are in a small organization and responsible for all the roles, please review all sections of this document to ensure an efficient and stable deployment of ZENworks in your environment.


This guide is intended for any of the administrators responsible for maintaining a part of the ZENworks infrastructure, or those who manage the network, security, or database aspects in today’s complex environments.


We want to hear your comments and suggestions about this manual and the other documentation included with this product. Please use the User Comments feature at the bottom of each page of the online documentation.

Additional Documentation

ZENworks Configuration Management is supported by other documentation (in both PDF and HTML formats) that you can use to learn about and implement the product. For additional documentation, see the ZENworks 11SP3 documentation web site.
