28.2 Procedure

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, navigate to the Devices tab.

  2. Click a device that you want to locate.

  3. Click the Geolocation tab.

  4. Click Locate Now.

    On clicking Locate Now, a quick task is sent to the device and only the last known location of the device is identified and populated in ZENworks. The location details such as the address, the longitude and latitude along with the time stamp are displayed. You can also click View on map to view the location on Google Maps.

    If the device does not respond within a minute of the quick task initiation, then the operation is timed out. Subsequently, whenever a new location request is sent to the device, the previous location details stored by ZENworks are overwritten with the latest location details.
