6.0 Infrastructure Management Settings

The Infrastructure Management section contains the following settings:

Closest Server Default Rule: Define the rule that is used by a device to determine the closest collection, content, and configuration servers when no Closest Server rules have been defined or when none apply. This rule is simply a listing of the servers in the order you want devices to contact them. You cannot add or remove servers from the lists. For more information, see Closest Server Default Rule.

Closest Server Rules: Create rules that are used to determine which servers a ZENworks Configuration Management 10.2.x/10.3.x device contacts for the collection, content, and configuration functions, if your ZENworks Management Zone includes more than one server. For more information, see Closest Server Rules.

This page is applicable only for devices that have ZENworks Configuration Management SP2/SP3 installed. The settings are disabled when you baseline your Management Zone to ZENworks 11.

HTTP Proxy Settings: Define proxy servers you want to use. A proxy server lets a device connect indirectly to a ZENworks Server through the proxy server.
