2.5 Performing Post-Installation Tasks

In order to manage the handheld devices, you must do the following:

2.5.1 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 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:

  1. In 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.

  4. Select Handheld Service Package, then click Next.

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

2.5.2 Setting Up a Handheld Import Policy

  1. In ConsoleOne, right-click the Handheld Service Package object that is created during Section 2.5.1, Creating the Handheld Service Package, then click Properties.

  2. Select the check box under the Enabled column 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 Setting Up Handheld Import in the Novell ZENworks 7 Handheld Management Administration Guide.

  3. Click the Associations tab, then click Add.

  4. 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.

  5. Click OK.
