II ZENworks Agent Deployment

The following sections provide information and instructions to help you deploy the ZENworks Agent to devices so that you can manage them. If you face issues with any of the Discovery and Deployment tasks, then check the following logs:

  • On the server: loader-messages.log and services-messages.log.

  • On the target device: Event viewer logs (on Windows) and /var/log/messages (on Linux)

  • (If proxy is used) On the proxy device: zmd-messages.log

NOTE:Device discovery and deployment tasks for Agent are not supported for a Mac platform. In this case, the agent needs to be installed manually using a standalone installer.

IMPORTANT:To support legacy Windows devices as mentioned below, weak cipher suites are used to communicate between Servers and Managed Devices and these ciphers might be added into the server configuration. To use strong ciphers, use a newer version of Windows in the zone.

Following are the legacy Windows devices:

  • Windows 7 SP1

  • Windows Embedded 7 SP1

  • Windows Server 2008 SP2

  • Windows Server 2008 R2

  • Windows 2008 R2 SP1

  • Windows 2012

  • Windows 2012 R2 Server
