After imaging Windows 7.

Hello everyone....

I am using ZCM 11.2

I created a Windows 7 image of a Lenovo T500 laptop.

I then used another T500 laptop to put the image on.

Everything seemed to go OK once I got the imaging going.

After the image was done, I disconnected it from the network and rebooted.
It came up with Windows 7 and everything looked good. I changed the computer
name to reflect the different computer and it shows up on the ZCC.

My problem is that the two computers don't both show up on the ZCC at the
same time. It looks like whichever one is booted up last supersedes the
other one.

I figure that there is something unique in the Zenworks Adaptive Agent
configuration that is unique to each computer that is getting duplicated in
the Zenworks imaging process, but I don't know what it is.

In Zenworks 7, there was the ability to unregister a workstation to handle
this Would unregistering one of the two of them correct this, but how do it
reregister again?

Thanks.

It all depends on how you configure the image before uploading it?

Did you check this guide in the docs?:
http://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks11/zen11_cm_preboot_imaging/
?page=/documentation/zenworks11/zen11_cm_preboot_imaging/data/bookinfo.h
tml
section 3.1

There's some good guidelines in there.

Re: After imaging Windows 7.

Niels,

I did really nothing to prep the image. I guess I wanted to see how well
this would work.

I literally took an active machine, booted it off the CD and took the image
as is.

I wanted to see how feasible that scenario was.

Re: After imaging Windows 7.

Niels,

I'm looking for a COMPLETE image prep process with Windows 7 and sysprep (or
not) using KMS server.

Do you know where I can find something ?

Thanks.

Do you want (need) the ZCM Agent preinstalled on the image, before
upload?
