ZENworks 2017 Update 1 enables you to configure ZENworks to use IPv6 as the protocol for communication. This includes support for L4 switch configuration.
For more information, see the ZENworks 2017 Update 2 IPv6 Reference.
NOTE:ZENworks Primary Servers need to have both IPv4 and IPv6 enabled. However, the Satellite Servers and managed devices can have IPv4, IPv6 or both enabled.
Mobile Management includes the following new features and enhancements:
Support for Apple’s Device Enrollment Program: ZENworks now supports the Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to easily deploy multiple corporate-owned iOS devices.
Some of the key features of this program include:
Zero-touch enrollment of devices to ZENworks
Wireless supervision of devices
Mandatory enrollment of devices
Ability to lock MDM profiles on the devices
Streamlined setup process
Enrollment of supervised iOS devices and the inclusion of additional restrictions: In this release, ZENworks supports the enrollment of iOS devices in the supervised mode through the Apple Device Enrollment Program or by using the Apple Configurator.
Additional settings have been introduced in the Device Control Policy to apply restrictions on these supervised devices.
Messaging using Firebase Cloud Messaging: You can now migrate from the Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) Service to the Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) Service.
Configuration of app parameters: ZENworks lets you pre-configure supported apps for iOS devices by specifying key-value pairs or by uploading a configuration file obtained from the app vendor.
Configure a HTTP Proxy Server for an MDM Server: You can now define a HTTP Proxy Server to enable an MDM Server to connect to the Internet through the proxy server.These proxy servers are used by the MDM Servers to contact the APNs Server, GCM Server, and managed mobile devices.
Language support for email notifications: Multi-language support for email notifications sent to mobile devices is now available with this release. The Mobile Enrollment Policy lets you specify the language in which these notifications are to be sent. You can also edit the email message in your preferred language.
Configure ActiveSync Logon Attribute in the User Source: ZENworks now lets you edit the User Source (LDAP directory) attribute that will be used to authenticate to the ActiveSync Server, while synchronizing emails on devices.
NOTE:After updating to ZENworks 2017 Update 1, the existing users of ZENworks 2017 need to ensure that the appropriate ActiveSync Logon attribute is configured in the user source so that ZENworks continues to relay emails to the enrolled devices.
For more information on the ActiveSync Logon Attribute, see Configuring the Attribute for ActiveSync Server Authentication in ZENworks 2017 Mobile Management Reference.
(Experimental support) ZENworks Application (ZAPP) now enables you to pin and unpin bundles to the Desktop, Taskbar and Start menu tiles.
For more information, see ZENworks Application 2017 Update 2.
The system update enhancements will enable you to:
View the deployment status in a zone: After deploying a system update in the zone, users can view the deployment status of Primary Servers by using the https://<host_name>:7444/systemupdate/sustatus link. The filter options enable users to limit the number of results displayed, based on the build version and deployment status.
View the deployment status by device: The new search feature enables users to narrow down the deployments status results based on the device name, device type and status.
For more information, see the ZENworks System Updates Reference.
