At a Windows workstation, insert the Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management CD (or the Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management with Support Pack 1 CD).
If you run the installation from a directory location where you have copied the ZENworks Desktop Management ISO files, make sure that all of the ISO files are copied to the location from which you are running winsetup.exe.
IMPORTANT:If you remove the Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management CD (or the Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management with Support Pack 1 CD) from the CD drive during the installation, or if you lose your connection to the server you are installing to, the installation program stops and does not proceed.

Workstation Manager: Lets administrators configure and manage workstations by using Novell eDirectory™.
Workstation Inventory: Helps administrators collect hardware and software inventory information from scanned workstations.
Remote Management: Lets an administrator manage remote workstations from a management console.
Mirror Driver: This feature provides video adapter independence and co-existence with other remote control solutions. If this feature is selected, the MSI installation overrides video driver checks and suppresses any Windows messages. If you do not want this driver, you can deselect it (optimization will be disabled).
The Mirror Driver is not yet signed by Microsoft.
Workstation Imaging: Lets an administrator take an image of a workstation's hard drive and put it on other workstations over the network.

Enter the DNS Name or IP Address of the Middle Tier Server: Specify the DNS name or IP address of the ZENworks Middle Tier Server that the agent will be connecting to.
IMPORTANT:Entering a protocol (such as http: or https:) along with the IP address does not allow the Desktop Management Agent to connect to the ZENworks Middle Tier Server.
Enter the Port Value Used by the Middle Tier Server: Specify the HTTP or HTTPS port number that the Apache Web Server (NetWare) or the IIS Web Server (Windows) will use to listen for the Agent login.
IMPORTANT:When designating a secure (HTTPS) port, you must use port 443.
The IP address or DNS name and the port number let the workstation access the Apache Web server running alongside the Middle Tier, which passes the authentication credentials to the Desktop Management Server. The IP address or DNS name is optional if the Novell Client is installed.
