Additional Information

For the ZENworks product line, Novell determines the level of management services and support for client platforms, operating system versions and editions based on market and customer demand.

Novell generally ends support for a client platform when the Operating System manufacturer stops offering extended support for that platform.

ZENworks products may continue to function on unsupported platforms but we no longer test new ZENworks releases or updates on them and do not fix issues that may arise with the operation of ZENworks products running on them.

Novell may continue to offer self support services, including access to work-arounds and Technical Information Documents (TIDs) for unsupported platforms.
