1.1 Creating the Handheld Service Package

A policy package is an eDirectory object containing one or more individual policies. A policy package groups policies according to function, making it easier to administer them. It also provides the means for the administrator to change policy settings and to determine how they affect other eDirectory objects.

In ZENworks Handheld Management, the Handheld Service Package contains only the Handheld Import policy.

You should create an Organizational Unit (OU) to hold the policy packages. Consider the following when determining where to place this OU:

To minimize tree walking, it is best to create this policy package OU at the root of the partition that contains the objects with which the policy package is associated. It also maximizes the number of characters that are available for naming the policy.

To create the Handheld Service Package:

  1. In Novell ConsoleOne®, right-click the container where you want the container for the policy packages placed, click New, then click Organizational Unit.

    The New Organizational Unit window is displayed.

    New Organization Unit dialog box
  2. Give the container a short name, then click OK.

  3. Right-click the newly created container that holds your policy packages, click New, then click Policy Package.

  4. Select Handheld Service Package, then click Next.

    Policy Package Wizard page
  5. Give the policy package a short name, then click Next.

  6. Review the information in the Summary page, then click Finish.
