7.0 Setting Up Managed Devices

Before a workstation or server can be managed by ZENworks Linux Management, it must have the ZENworks Agent installed and be registered in the Management Zone.

On a SLES 10 IA 64 platform, before installing or upgrading to ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management from the earlier versions of ZENworks Linux Management, make sure to change the security level preference from Signature to None. You can change the preference by using the rug command. For more information, see rug (1) in the Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management Administration Guide. For more information on how to set the security-level preference by using ZENworks Control Center, see Configuring the ZENworks Management Daemon (ZMD) Settingsin the Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management Administration Guide.

NOTE:Installing the ZENworks Linux Management agent removes the previously added YaST installation sources from the device. You can add these installation sources again after the agent installation is complete by using either YaST or the rug command. The installation sources are automatically synchronized with ZENworks in YaST if the Synchronize Changes with ZENworks option is selected in the Installation Source pane.

The following sections provide setup instructions:
