Man… this question comes up a lot these days. In essence, what people want to know is should I have a dedicated tree in place to support ZENworks functionality, or should I just put ZENworks into my existing File and Print tree?
I’m interested in hearing your views. Mine are clear to me. Here’s what I’m thinking. Create a new ZENworks tree if you are moving to the next major version of ZENworks, and you want to address the design and solutions architecture of your ZENworks environment. I favor the “ZENTREE” approach for another major reason. ZENworks in it’s own tree allows the administration team to update it without affecting traditional file and print services, or the enterprise directory.
Does this mean that I favor a dedicated ZENTREE exclusively? Absolutely not. It doesn’t always make sense.
As said… I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on this topic.
