FixZen wil reregsiter systems on your network with ZENworks by running a wmi process that executes zwsreg -unreg and then zwsreg on a remote system. Just type in the Host name or IP address. The tool is handy for fixing machines that have had their names changed and are not updated in Zenworks.

The script is bundled into an exe but the source contents looks as such:

' Fix unregistered Zen Machines
' Author Daniel VanMeter

strExe = "cmd.exe /C zwsreg -unreg && zwsreg"
strComputer = (InputBox("The FixZen utility reregisters a remote client with a Novell Zenwork Server by using the zwsreg command." & vbNewline & " " & vbNewline & "Requirements:" & vbNewline & "1. Access to WMI on remote system." & vbNewline & "2. You must be logged in locally with an account that has admin rights on the remote system." & vbNewline & "3: Zenworks is installed on the remote client." & vbNewline & " " & vbNewline & "Please enter a computer name or IP below:" ,_
"FixZen Tool: Created by Daniel VanMeter"))

If strComputer = "" Then
End If

' Connect to WMI
set objWMIService = getobject("winmgmts://"_
& strComputer & "/root/cimv2")
' Obtain the Win32_Process class of object.
Set objProcess = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Process")
Set objProgram = objProcess.Methods_( _
objProgram.CommandLine = strExe

'Execute the program now at the command line.
Set strShell = objWMIService.ExecMethod( _
"Win32_Process", "Create", objProgram)

WScript.echo "FixZen successfully run on " & strcomputer & ". The computer name may take up to a minute to appear."
