You can define requirements, such as operating system, total memory, and processor speed, that a device must meet for the policy to be applied to it. These requirements are in addition to any location-based requirements. For example, consider a policy that is associated with the Office location. When the device is in the Office location, the policy is applied only if it meets the system requirements defined in the policy.
You define requirements through the use of filters. A filter is a condition that must be met by a device in order for the policy to be applied. For example, you can add a filter to specify that the device must have exactly 512 MB of RAM in order for the policy to be applied, and you can add another filter to specify that the hard drive be at least 20 GB in size.
To create system requirements for a policy:
In ZENworks Control Center, click thetab.
Click the policy to display the policy’s Summary page.
Click, select a filter condition from the drop-down list, then fill in the fields.
As you construct filters, you need to know the conditions you can use and how to organize the filters to achieve the desired results. For more information, see Section 14.1, Filter Conditions and Section 14.2, Filter Logic.
(Optional) Add additional filters and filter sets.
Clickto save the settings.
Creating or changing system requirements creates a Sandbox version of the policy. For the requirements to be applied, you must publish the Sandbox version.
To publish the Sandbox version, click, then follow the wizard prompts.
For more information about publishing the Sandbox version of a policy, see Section 15.0, Publishing Policies.
