HandHeld Password Best Practices

I've posted this in the ZENworks for HandHelds forum, but haven't received
a response, and I'm running out of time. (Yeah, my boss has asked me
about it, and I'm not a big HandHeld person [PDAs, BlackBerry, etc].)

Is there a "Best Practices" guide on setting passwords for HandHelds?

When we create accounts for users in eDir, we can either do it one at a
time via ConsoleOne or bulkload, and we usually put in the same temporary
first-time password. This gets them into their PC, portal, etc.

How would this work for HandHelds? I'd like to do the same thing (set
initial passwords for a group of HHs). Who has done this, what does it
take to do, and what do you recommend?

Also, I would like to see any sort of Whitepaper on ZEN for HandHelds if
at all possible. Novell's ZENworks site doesn't have much of anything on
it. At least, nothing useful for what I need.

Thanks!

Turn them in to hockey pucks?

That is the type of answer you are going to get in here, I am afraid.
You might also get FDISK... (Hint, Hint) Anywho... We can not give
answers here because this is a non tech support group. If you are not
getting answers in the proper forum, then I am afraid you might have to
shell (I love my Shell <G>) out 650 bucks and call Novell Support.

Then hang around and enjoy the fun... (But stay away from Shaun, he's
like a non-smelly Simon Cowell)

Well I can't provide support because as a well enforced rule this is a
non support forum, but it looks like you are looking for information
such as white papers so I think I can help a little without getting
thwacked.

Have you looked at the documentation for the product?

Yes, I have looked at the documentation, but it doesn't really help. It
was the second place I checked.

Unfortunately then I'm at a loss there. I am not running it either to
be able to give you feedback even if this was the proper forum.

Re: HandHeld Password Best Practices

Jimmy:

As others have mentioned, this is not a Novell support forum. It's one
of the few that aren't.

Have you done a search of the knowledgebase? If you're not receiving a
response in the forums, that's the place I'd look. Seems like there's
some pertinent information in there. : )
