Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


Problems with ZCM and its components after installing on a node in a cluster.


There is no support for ZCM to be installed or run on a cluster / node. This is due to the fact ZCM has built in fault tolerance through content replication and closest server rules. As well as in many cases multiple IP addresses are bound to the server, so during install multiple IP's are bound to services / component configurations causing issues.

Additional Information

More information on this can be found in the ZENworks ZCM Documentation under the Software Repository section.
Note: The ZCM Database can run on a Microsoft server cluster. See ZCM System Architecture for version 10 or version 10.1.
