10.4 Manually Deploying the Agent

Rather than having a ZENworks Server deliver the Adaptive Agent to a device, you can manually download the Adaptive Agent deployment package from the server and install the agent.

1. Make sure the device meets the necessary requirements (see "Managed Device Requirements" in the ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Installation Guide).
2. On the target device, open a Web browser to the following address:

http://server/zenworks-setup

where server is the DNS name or IP address of a ZENworks Server.
ZENworks Download page

The Web browser displays a list of deployment packages. For each architecture (32-bit and 64-bit), there are two types of packages:

Network: The network package downloads and installs only the preagent to the target device; the preagent then downloads and installs the ZENworks Adaptive Agent from the ZENworks Server. The network package requires that Microsoft .NET is installed on the device prior to the deployment of the agent to the device.

Standalone: The standalone package downloads the preagent and Adaptive Agent to the target device; the preagent then installs the Adaptive Agent from the local device. The standalone package is useful when you need to install the ZENworks Adaptive Agent to a device that is currently disconnected from the network. You can save the package to removable media (CD, USB flash drive, and so forth) and have the standalone device run the package from the media. The Adaptive Agent is installed to the device, but no registration or management occurs until the device connects to the network.

Custom: The package name, Default Agent, refers to the pre-defined deployment packages. The custom deployment packages created through Deployment > Edit Deployment Package appears with the name given during the creation of the package.
3. Click the name of the deployment package you want to use, then save the package to the device’s local drive or run it from the ZENworks Server.
4. If you downloaded the package, launch the package on the device.

For information about options you can use with the package, see Package Options.
5. Upon completion of the installation, a message is displayed asking whether to reboot. Select one of the following options:
* Do nothing and auto-reboot occurs after 5 minutes.
* Click Cancel. You need to reboot later.
* Click OK to reboot immediately.

When the device reboots, it is registered in the Management Zone and the ZENworks icon is placed in the notification area (system tray).

In ZENworks Control Center, the device appears under the \Servers folder structure or \Workstation folder structure on the Devices page.

Package Options

You can use the options listed below when launching a deployment package from the command line. The syntax is:

package name option1 option2 ...

For example:

PreAgentPkg_Agent.exe -q -v -k regkey1

-d target_path: Extract the files to the specified target path. The default target path is c:\windows\novell\zenworks\stage.

-h: Display help information.

-k: The registration key used to register the device in the management zone.

-l: List the contents of the package only. Do not extract the package and run the installation.

-n: Extract the package but do not run the installation.

-x: Do not reboot after installation.

-q: Suppress the reboot prompt.

-v: Turn on verbose screen logging.

In addition to the options listed above, there are two additional BUILDTIME options (-f file and -o output_file) that are used when building packages. These options should only be used under the direction of Novell Technical Services.
