Binding ZCM to a Single IP address


December 8, 2007 6:40 am





Locate the server.xml

On linux, this would be located in:


On Windows, this location would be:

C:\Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\share\tomcat\conf

Find the following section. Notice that there is not a address=’’ section

Define a non-SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 80

Add the “address” option so that the connector looks like this.
Tomcat Connector Img
Note: This must be done for the 443 section also. “SSL”

Define a SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 443

After making the changes, either reboot or restart the following servers.


/etc/init.d/novell-zenserver restart


Administrative Tools -> Services -> Restart Novell ZENworks Server

    Nice solution to fix an option that’s missing during ZCM install. I wonder if this manual tweak will be deleted during ZCM server updates? Thanks!

      I haven’t heard that the changes are trashed after a system update.

      I would think that the system would want to keep that configuration file as was, as there could be other custom settings, but I will try to keep an eye out for this.
