24.0 Replicating Content in the ZENworks Management Zone

Novell® ZENworks® Linux Management uses a hierarchical organization to simplify device management. At the top level, a ZENworks Management Zone provides an autonomous unit of ZENworks servers and managed devices (workstations and servers). The ZENworks servers manage the devices.

Each ZENworks Management Zone has one primary server, and optionally, one or more secondary servers to help distribute the workload.

All RPM packages, Dell Update Packages (DUPs), and files contained in file bundles must reside on the primary server. ZENworks Linux Management uses content replication to replicate packages to each secondary server in your system.

NOTE:Depending on your needs, you might have more than one ZENworks Management Zone in your system. The content replication procedure in this section helps you replicate content from the primary server to secondary servers in a particular Management Zone. To replicate content across Management Zones, you must use zlmmirror. For more information, see Section 25.0, Mirroring Software.
