Making files easy to find in ZCM servers (Windows)

When using ZCM on a windows 2003 server it can be frustrating when modifying images or tftp files to remember where the files exist on the server. For me the key files that I need access to are the image store and the tftp folder. These can be in different locations depending on where ZCM was installed and where the %ZENWORKS_HOME% variable points.



The default location for the image store is:



%ZENWORKS_HOME%\Work\Content-Repo\images\


The default location for the tftp folder is:

%ZENWORKS_HOME%\Share\tftp


where %ZENWORKS_HOME% points to c:\Program files\novell\zenworks




If you are working in a Windows world - when mapping a drive or making a connection to the server you need to use the following path:


\\servername\c$\Program files\novell\zenworks\Work\Content-Repo\images\



for the image files


or


\\servername\c$\Program files\novell\zenworks\Share\tftp

for tftp




To make things simpler for me to remember and maybe more familiar in a normal ZENworks world I set up Windows shares for these paths.



\\servername\c$\Program files\novell\zenworks\Work\Content-Repo\images\ 

is shared to:

\\servername\images\



and


\\servername\c$\Program files\novell\zenworks\Share\tftp


is shared to

\\servername\tftp



This makes it easier to remember and will stop people poking at other files within the ZCM folder structure.
