In the ZENworks Control Center, you can set up default Preboot Services configurations for all of your devices. Some settings can be overridden at the device, group, or folder level.
You can configure the following settings per
Preboot Services Menu options: The menu contains seven options: 1), which automatically executes the bundle; 2) , which accesses the bash prompt; 3) ; 4) ; 5) ; 6) ; and, 7) , which resumes booting. You can configure whether the Preboot Services Menu is displayed upon booting, not displayed, or allowed to be displayed only when Ctrl+Alt is pressed during booting.
Image storage security: You can restrict where to save image files on the imaging server.
Non-registered device settings: You can use Preboot Services to automatically name your non-registered devices using such criteria as prefixes, BIOS information (like asset tags or serial numbers), DNS suffixes, and you can set up DHCP or IP addresses.
Preboot work assignment rules: Work assignment rules are used to determine which bundle should be applied to which device. The work rules use logic to determine whether a device meets the requirements for applying the Preboot bundle. A rule is comprised of filters that are used to determine whether a device complies with the rule. The AND and OR logical operators are used for creating complex filters for the rule.
Preboot referral lists: When a device boots, it is necessary for it to find its home ZENworks Management Zone to get its assigned preboot work. If multiple management zones exist on the network, referral lists provide a method for allowing a managed device to find its home zone.
Intel Active Management Technology (AMT): Intel* AMT provides Preboot Services with persistent device identification.
