With mobile workforce being a very common scenario in most organizations it's not unusual to see lots of laptops are not checking into the corporate network on a regular basis and thus not getting the configurations that you should be expecting the machines to have on a regular basis. The report in discussion will provide you a means to identify machines that have not been connecting to the ZENworks System on a regular basis and take appropriate remedial action.



Report Description



Download the attached report and import it under the following folder in your ZENworks installation:


Novell ZENworks Reports >> Custom Reports >> Custom Reports Library >> ZENworks System


For instructions on how to import custom reports please refer to the article: “Importing a ZRS report”


We will discuss about the three distinct parts of the report:




  • Summary Tab

  • Device List Tab

  • User Prompt
