In order to manage the handheld devices, you must do the following:
Import handheld devices into eDirectory.
The following sections provide information you need for setting up an Import policy:
Ensure that the users synchronize their handheld devices using their normal synchronization process (Microsoft ActiveSync, Palm HotSync, and so forth)
After the handheld objects are imported into the directory, you can begin using policy-based management, distributing software applications to individual handheld devices or to groups of handheld devices, collecting hardware and software inventory for all enterprise handheld devices, and more.
Set up the policies that can be associated with handheld objects. For more information, see the ZENworks 6.5 Handheld Management Administration Guide.
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 one policy: Handheld Import.
You should create an Organizational Unit (OU) to hold the policy packages. Consider the following when determining where to place this OU:
Partitions in your tree
The 256-character limit in eDirectory for the full distinguished name
The Search policy that is used to locate the policy package
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 will be associated. It also maximizes the number of characters that will be available for naming the policy.
To create the Handheld Service Package:
In ConsoleOne, right-click the container where you want the container for the policy packages placed, click, then click .
The New Organizational Unit window is displayed.
Give the container a short name, then click.
Right-click the newly created container that will hold your policy packages, click, then click .
Select, then click .
Give the policy package a short name, then click Next.
Review the information in the Summary page, then click.
In ConsoleOne, right-click the Handheld Service Package object that is created during Section 2.5.1, Creating the Handheld Service Package, then click .
Select the check box under thecolumn for the Handheld Import policy.
This both selects and enables the policy with the default settings.
You can modify the settings of the Import policy. For more information, see Novell ZENworks 7 Handheld Management Administration Guide.
Click thetab, then click .
To associate the package, browse for the ZENworks Handheld Management Service object, the container containing the Service object, or the container object created during the installation of ZENworks Handheld Management server components.
