Install ZCM after sysprep

How install ZCM PreAgent after applied image?
I can include ZCM agent install to image, but it is not good, because after update I must recreate image.

Who know other method to do this? May be deployment from ZCC? Which method determine PC that need to deploy agent?

Have a look at the ENGL ztoolkit. It helps you automate the build of WinXP/Vista, inc drivers and intergrates into ZENWorks.

I've been working on it for deploying a new SOE, and it is a very good product which i'd highly recommend.

AFAICS, ztoolkit need Zenworks 7 and not support ZCM 10

Re: Install ZCM after sysprep

If you already have Sysprep up and running then you can do this very simply without any extra software. With our sysprep, once the PC has built, we have it autoadminlogon (set in WinLogon Area in registry) and call up a batch file (set in Run area in registry) which lies on a a server share. That batch files contains various lines for items we want to install post sysprep/image. Being on the server we can edit that file and change the install routines as we like without having to rebuild the images/syspreps.

For ZCM, we simply copied the PreAgentPkg_Agent.exe to that server share and got the batch file to launch "PreAgentPkg_Agent.exe -q". That installs the agent, registers in ZCM, reboots and your ready to go.
