8.3 Network Credential Manager

ZENworks AgentZENworks Agent includes a Network Credential Manager that supplements ZENworks Credential Provider wrapper. Network Credential Manager facilitates passive mode authentication when users login with any third party credential provider.

Network Credential Manager works with many third party credential providers including Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View credential providers.

When you use an alternate credential provider, the login process is owned by this credential provider and Windows notifies the ZENworks Credential Manager of the user’s credentials. So, the following capabilities are not available while using a third party credential manager:

  • Dynamic Local User

  • Windows Roaming Profile Policies

  • Windows Group Policies

NOTE:It is recommended that the Network Credential Manager is used in Windows Active Directory or Domain services.
