Let me be the first to announce the availability of the Public Beta.

Head here to download (Novell Login required)

Note the readme and the hardware requirements for installation.

I strongly recommend installing this on a server class machine. If you want to see ZENworks Configuration Management, Reporting and the integrated ZENworks Patch Management – you will really need a dual core machine with 4 GB of RAM.

Note that in the Public Beta the reporting functions require a Windows 2003 Server.

Download, install and report back your findings.

I’ll be blogging on the features in the coming days and weeks.

    It’s size at 4GB means that anyone behind a BorderManager proxy can not download the file. Has anyone at Novell considered
    using WinZip against the file?

    I heard there wasn’t going to be an app launcher. Is that true? We rely on the app launcher on every single desktop and it would be a big reason not to move to Zen 10.

  3. By:Ron van Herk

    Nope, not true. Application Launcher is still there

  4. Maybe the confusion is because there is no separate application explorer. It’s integrated into the agent a little more completely than before. The functionality is still there though.

    You’ve just made me the happiest man alive. Thanks for the update.

    Windows Server 2003 is required?

    Nice. Now there’s no way we can deploy it.

    Thanks.

    SLES 10, Open Enterprise Server 2 or Windows.

    Try it on SLES 10 or OES2.

    For customers planning to run on OES2-Linux, how does Novell plan to gather feedback from these customers regarding the ZCM public beta, as there is currently no OES2 public beta release to test upon? Or, does noone at Novell think this is a bit of an oversight?

  2. Eric

    We have internal testing running on both SLES 10 SP1 and Open Enterprise Server 2 beta.

    Also we do have several beta customers who ‘overlap’ the two beta programs.

    Oh, man, I totally slept through ZenWorks 8 and ZenWorks 9, apparently.

  4. By:Goofy

    So did Novell… apparently.
