To install a Secondary Server:
Synchronize the Secondary Server's system clock with the Primary Server's system clock to ensure correct operation of the system. If the two servers are not synchronized, the installation fails.
After synchronizing the clocks, restart eDirectory and all ZENworks Linux Management services on the Primary Server. To restart the ZENworks Linux Management services, enter the following command:
(Conditional) If ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management is configured with a PostgreSQL database, then go to the ZENworks Primary Server that you installed by following the steps in Installing the ZENworks Primary Server, and enter the following command:
where Secondary_Server is the IP address of the intended Secondary Server. This command identifies each Secondary Server before it is installed. Repeat this command for each Secondary Server that you install.
If you are installing to a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (SLES 10) device, see Section A.6, Installing a ZENworks Server on a Device Configured with DHCP.
NOTE:If you add a Secondary Server that has a router between it and the Primary Server, you get the following error message:
The installer was unable to connect to the specified database. Please verify the values you entered and try again.
Check the /var/opt/novell/log/zenworks/zlm-config.log file on the Primary Server and see which IP address the Primary Server thinks is trying to connect with it. If the address is the router’s address rather than the address of your Secondary Server, you most likely have masquerading running on the router.
The best solution to remedy this problem is to disable masquerading on the router. You can also use the router address when specifying the IP address of the Secondary Server but this causes potential security risks.
When prompted to restart ZENworks, enter Y for Yes.
Make sure the intended Secondary Server meets the requirements. See Section 2.1, ZENworks Server Requirements.
IMPORTANT:If other services run on port 80, the installation will fail; the server cannot run other services on port 80. If Apache or another service is binding to port 80, remove the service or change the service’s port.
For example, change the Apache2 web server's Listen Port (on SLES 9 SP1 as found in /etc/apache2/ listen.conf) from 80 to 81. Make sure the Apache service is shut down and then run zlm-config.
Make sure the Secondary Server's system clock is synchronized with the Primary Server's system clock.
System clock synchronization is required to ensure correct operation of the ZENworks system. If the two servers are not synchronized, the installation fails.
After synchronizing the clocks, restart eDirectory and all ZENworks Linux Management services on each server that had its clock’s time changed. To restart the ZENworks Linux Management services, enter the following command:
At the intended Secondary Server, mount the product media of the ZENworks Linux Management version you want to install by using the mount device mountpoint command:
Use the Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management installation media to install ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management.
Use the Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with Interim Release 1 Server installation media to install ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with IR1.
Use the Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with Interim Release 2 Server installation media to install ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with IR2.
Use the Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with Interim Release 3 Server installation media to install ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with IR3.
Use the Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with Interim Release 4 Server installation media to install ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with IR4.
For example, to install ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management, mount the product media by using mount /dev/cdrom /zlm73.
If you are using an ISO image rather than a physical media, copy the ISO to a temporary folder on the Linux server, then mount the image using the following command:
:mount -o loop /tempfolderpath/isoimagename.iso mountpoint
Replace tempfolderpath with the path to the temporary folder and replace mountpoint with the path to the file system location you want to mount the image. The path specified by mountpoint must already exist.
mount -o loop /zlm73/ZEN73_LinuxMgmt.iso /zlm73/install
Log in as root, then start the installation program from the mount point by running the following command:
NOTE:The steps in this procedure perform a standard installation of ZENworks Linux Management. Depending on your situation, additional options can be used with the zlm-install command. For more information, see Section A.1, Installation Options.
If you do not have the X Window System installed (for example, you installed a Minimal installation of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9), you must install the glib2, XFree86-libs-32 bit, and compat-32bit packages and use the -x option while installing the ZENworks Agent. For more information, see -x.
For more information about installing ZENworks Linux Management on a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with a Minimal installation, see Operating Systems.
When prompted to install ZENworks, enter Y to continue.
Review the Software License Agreement, pressing Page Down to scroll down the page, then enter Y to accept the agreement.
Installation of the software begins. There are ten software components to install. Installation progress is displayed for each component.
When installation of the software is complete, enter Y to run zlm-config and configure the ZENworks Secondary Server.
IMPORTANT:If the default server rule is modified on the Primary Server while you are configuring the Secondary Server, ensure that the modified rule is applicable to all the servers that are registering to the Primary Server.
Provide the appropriate responses to the following prompts:
Is this the first server in your system?: Enter N for No.
IP address or DNS name of the primary server: Enter the IP address or DNS name of the Primary Server.
Is the system clock synchronized with the primary server?: Enter Y to continue (Step 1).
Administrator Password: Enter the password for the ZENworks Administrator account.
Would you like to continue with installation into the Management Zone?: The installation program displays the name of the ZENworks Management Zone in which the Secondary Server will be installed. Enter Y to continue.
The zlm-config utility adds the server to the ZENworks system as a ZENworks Secondary Server and then configures the ZENworks Server software components.
Choose to continue with a Self-Signed Certificate or to import your own PKCS12 certificate. If you choose to import your own PKCS12 certificate, you must enter the location of the certificate and the password.
For more information on the Self-Signed Certificates, see Section A.7, Adding a Third-Party Certificate.
When configuration of the ZENworks Server software components is complete, you should verify the installation. To do so:
Confirm that the ZENworks services are running by using the following command:
The screen output should show that all services are running.
log dir: /var/opt/novell/log/zenworks Novell eDirectory is running Novell ZENworks Server is running Novell ZENworks Loader is running Novell ZENworks Imaging Service is running Novell ZENworks Preboot Policy Daemon is running Novell ZENworks Server Management is running Novell ZENworks Management Daemon is running
If a service is not running, use the following command to start it:
Replace servicename with the name of the service that needs to be started.
Novell ZENworks Server
Novell ZENworks Loader
Novell ZENworks Imaging Service
Novell ZENworks Preboot Policy Daemon
Novell ZENworks Server Management
Novell ZENworks Management Daemon
For example, if the Novell ZENworks Management Daemon is not running, use the following command to start it:
For additional information about the ZENworks services, see Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management Administration Guide.
Access the ZENworks Control Center using the following URL:
Replace ZENworks_Primary_Server_Address with the IP address or DNS name of the Primary Server.
After you are in the Control Center, you can click thetab, then click the folder to view your ZENworks Secondary Server.
Repeat the steps in this section to set up additional Secondary Servers.
