In this course, students learn about the fundamental concepts, processes, and architecture of Novell
ZENworks 10 Configuration Management (Standard version) by installing and using Novell ZENworks 10
Configuration Management with few configuration changes.

This approach helps students become familiar with the purpose and components of Novell ZENworks 10
Configuration Management (for evaluation purposes), and enables them to perform basic administrative
tasks in a lab environment, or in a production environment under the direction of an experienced Novell
ZENworks 10 Configuration Management network engineer.

Students work with a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 virtual machine and two virtual Windows XP
Professional (SP2) workstations to install, configure, and test the core features of Novell ZENworks 10
Configuration Management and AdminStudio for ZENworks (included in the Standard version). The virtual
machines are run in VMware Player (or VMware Workstation, where available).

This course targets:

  • Novell software system administrators, integrators, and engineers
  • Networking consultants
  • Reseller/partner technical support staff
  • New Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management customers
