BOSTON (05/08/2000) - We installed ZENworks for Servers 1.0 software on a network consisting of two NetWare 5.1 servers and a single Novell Inc. NetWare 4.2 server. Both NetWare 5.1 servers contained Pentium 200-MHz processors with 128M bytes of memory. The NetWare 4.2 server had a Pentium 133-MHz processor with 64M bytes of memory. All the servers were connected to a 10Base-T network via 3Com Corp. 10/100M-bps PCI network interface cards.
The client system had a Pentium 400-MHz processor with 128M bytes of memory and was running Windows 98. We installed Novell's ConsoleOne administration program on this machine along with Novell's latest client software, Version 3.21 with Service Pack 2 applied. We used this administration machine to test the different features of the ZENworks ConsoleOne snap-in module and to judge its overall ease of use. We built a distribution package comprising the Windows Notepad program, created server policies that established standards for downing servers and configured the Tiered Electronic Distribution function to push out the software package to all our servers.
