Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


1. Restore an image of a workstation
2. Clear Image Safe Data (zisedit -r)
3. Boot the OS and install the agent
4. The machine finishes agent install and reboots. Ziswin runs and reboots again.

The Windows SID is not written. Other information is written (Netbios name, Workgroup,DNS host, etc.).
If you reboot yet again, the SID is written.


This is fixed in version 10.0.1 - see KB 3486285 "Updates to ZENworks 10 Configuration Management" which can be found at
