HOWTO: Running ZCM's zman utility from a local Windows workstation

Ever wanted to run zman locally from a workstation instead of the server console? Here's how to make it happen:




  1. From the ZCM installation media install the following MSI packages:


    CD-ROM:\Common\msi\novell-zenworks-core-server-10.2.0.23638.msi

    CD-ROM:\Common\msi\novell-zenworks-jdk-1.5.0_11.msi

    CD-ROM:\Common\msi\novell-zenworks-java-utilities-server-10.2.0.22715.msi



    This installs the necessary components in the \Novell\ZENworks folder on one of your local drives. Not sure how the drive is selected, maybe just the one with the most free space. Let's assume you end up with X:\Novell\ZENworks...




  • Set an environment variable ZENWORKS_HOME=X:\Novell\ZENworks


  • Add X:\Novell\ZENworks\bin to the PATH variable


  • Copy the contents of the folder \lib\java from your ZCM server to your local workstation's X:\Novell\ZENworks\lib\java folder


  • Log off and on again



Now you can run zman from your local command line.




Update for ZCM 10.3:



  1. copy the following MSI installers from you ZCM server's %ZENWORKS_HOME\install\downloads\msi folder into an empty folder on the workstation:
    novell-zenworks-common-jars-10.3.0.53910.msi
    novell-zenworks-core-server-10.3.0.27649.msi
    novell-zenworks-java-utilities-server-10.3.0.27209.msi
    novell-zenworks-jdk-1.5.0_21.msi
    novell-zenworks-managed-devices-server-10.3.0.27209.msi
    novell-zenworks-bundles-server-10.3.0.53910.msi


  • open a cmd prompt, change to the above folder and run:
    for %m in (*) do start /wait msiexec /i %m /qb

  • Set an environment variable ZENWORKS_HOME=X:\Novell\ZENworks

  • Add X:\Novell\ZENworks\bin to the PATH variable



This enables zman to manage devices and bundles, if you run into errors due to missing libraries, you might have to try and install additional MSIs from the following list:

novell-zenworks-addon-image-server-10.3.0.53910.msi
novell-zenworks-asset-management-server-10.3.0.53910.msi
