Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management on Linux Support Pack 1 - ZDML7 SP1
Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


Register a device in the ZDM7 tree.
Copy the necessary files from the Pulsar server to the ZDM7 server:
All the files in the tftp/referral/zfd70
nvlnbp.sys from the main TFTP directory
pxelinux.0 from the main TFTP directory
memdisk from the main TFTP directory
Add the ZFD server to the server referral list in ZCC.
Boot the workstation

A message that the workstation is referred to the ZDM7 server is displayed,
but the workstation just sits there for about 1-2 minutes before exiting PXE.


This is fixed in version 10.0.1 - see KB 3486285 "Updates to ZENworks 10 Configuration Management" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
