1.4 Optional System Architecture

ZENworks Endpoint Security Management provides an optional system architecture that does not include directory service integration. This system architecture supports environments that don’t use one of the supported directory services (either Microsoft Active Directory or Novell eDirectory), don’t want to integrate with a directory service, or want to evaluate the product without installing all of the components.

In this architecture, the Management Service and Policy Distribution Service are not used. Security policies are exported directly from the Management Console’s database and must be copied to endpoint devices. Policy compliance reporting is not provided.
