1.5 Delivering Content Using File Bundles

A File bundle lets you create a bundle and distribute compressed files of the type tar.gz and tar.bz2. For example, you can include configuration files or data files in file bundles.

To create a File bundle:

  1. In the ZENworks Control Center, click the Bundles tab.

  2. In the Bundle list, click New > Bundle to display the Create New Bundle Wizard.

  3. Select File bundle, then click Next.

  4. Follow the prompts to create the File bundle and assign it to devices. For information about what you need to supply at each step of the wizard, click the Help Question Mark icon.

    When assigning the bundle to devices, you can lessen your management overhead by assigning the bundle to groups of devices rather than to individual devices. For more information about device groups, see Section 1.1, Organizing Devices: Folders and Groups.

For more detailed information about using bundles and bundle groups to deliver software to devices, see Section 20.0, Using RPM and File Bundles.
