What do I need to run ZWPatch Mgmt?

Morning,

Very interested in this, but I have a load of questions:

I have a eDir 8.7 tree with Zenworks for desktops 4.01 in it running on 
three NW6.5 boxes. I realise a Win2k Server box is necessary, but will 
the product install into that environment, or must I have Zenworks 6.5 
too?

Secondly, I have about 100 Zenworks-registered workstations in the tree, 
but an additional $BIGNUM (two 510 subnets' worth) of personal machines. 
I'd like to open the Patch management up to them too, is this possible 
without installing the ZfDa or Client32 on each workstation?

Cheers,

James,

you don't need ZENWorks, all you need is the windows server. Patchlink 
installs it's own agent, so the novell client isn't necessary either.

What needs to be done after applying a patch to Zenworks
Hey, I've already wrote a few times here but haven't been able to correct my problem. Recently we updated from Zenworks 4.01 ir4 to Zenworks 4.01 ir5. The zen partition doesn't seem to be updated because at the No Work To Do Screen it should say 4.01.05 but it's not. However, if I use the Boot Iso Cd and update the zen partition from it at the No Work To Do screen will then say 4.01.05. Isn't the zupdate.sig file in the sys/zenworks folder suppose to update the zen partition on each computer? Also, someone said that you can update the kernel by add...

Patches, patches, patches...
To forestall potential incidents of Warnock's Dillemma... I'm about to apply a whole heap 'o patches to Parrot.

Sorry 'bout this.

Running out of Drive Space on ZEN patch MGMt server
I'm running into an issue with drive space on the Zenworks Patch Management server, the folder C:\Program Files\Novell\ZENworks Patch Management Server\Storage\00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 It keeps growing and would like to automate the process to clean out older items, currently is 25 GB. Any suggestions? Thanks -- bkpinellas ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Bkpinellas, there's no way to automate this, but if you can add a new drive, you can move the storage to another location... http://www.novell.com/s...

Run apps without zenworks running?
This may be a really dumb-headed and probably useless question, but I'm curious (but not enough to try it during prod hours). If I have a NW server that has zenworks installed on it, but the services not running (zfdstop), can users still click on apps to distribute them? I only ask because zfdstart only starts WOL, Imaging, WS Imp/Rem and PXE. My gut and head says no it cant, but I only wonder. Thanks for answering my useless questions, Frank. Sorry, wrong area.

Where are the ZENworks Patch Management server patches at?

Where are these patches at? I cannot seem to find any of them on Novell's website. Applying these patches could very well fix my issue with my server not being able to contact novell.patchlinksecure.net as well as the issue we are having regarding the Discovery Agent using vast amounts of client CPU...
