The ZENworks Adaptive Agent supports Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 devices. You can fully manage devices on which the Adaptive Agent is deployed. This includes distributing software, enforcing policies, remotely managing the device, and so forth. The ZENworks Control Center displays managed devices on the Device page’s Managed tab.

Deployment instructions for the Adaptive Agent are provided in Section 10.0, Deploying the ZENworks Adaptive Agent.
If a Windows device does not meet the requirements for deploying the Adaptive Agent or if you want to inventory a Linux or a Macintosh device, you can deploy the Inventory-Only module.
For details see

After you deploy the module, the device is added to the ZENworks database. The ZENworks Control Center displays inventoried-only devices on the Device page’stab.
NOTE:The inventory-only module only collects and sends the inventory data. It does not perform any of the other tasks associated with the ZENworks Adaptive Agent.
