"zac sp " is used to set a proxy if:
- No proxy is configured on the network (ZCC Configuration/Infrastructure/HTTP Proxy setting).
- To override the setting from the network.
The file %ZENworks_Home%\cache\zmd\settings\PROXY_SETTINGS.xml holds the settings made on the network in ZCC. For linux the location is /var/opt/novell/zenworks/zmd/cache/settings/PROXY_SETTING.xml
Whereas the override proxy settings that can be set using the "zac sp " command are stored in the local ZEN Cache. To view, run "zac sp " (no parameters). To find in zac zeninfo files, see agentCacheInfo\zmd\ZenCache\index.html and click the link for PROXY_OVERRIDE .
These override settings can be removed from the local ZEN Cache using the "zac sp /clear " command. This does not remove the proxy settings that are made in ZCC and come down to the managed device as the XML file.
The "zac sp /clear " command may leave the impression that it allows deleting the zone-wide proxy settings, but it simply removes a persistent override of the setting from the local ZEN Cache.
The message "using the default settings " that is shown after executing the command means that the network settings will be used again (or not if no proxy was configured).
