RE: novell image server

There isn't much in C1 you need to set to get imaging to work, here is the online docs on the product version you have


I am just going to assume your NIC driver is not loading.

I am am speaking about the Linux driver, don't care about the Windows driver right now. Zen imaging uses a linux kernel, and holds onto a set of linux drivers.  Unless your workstation is a 5 year old PC, chances are, the driver for the NIC (and frankly anything else) just isn't there.  You CAN how ever download the current driver set for the most current version of Zenworks.


You can use the boot disk to get things going.  You will need to manually input your Imaging servers IP address (btw, proxy server = imaging server).

Note:  Your ZfD is so old, your chances of support for it are VERY low.  On top of that, the 4 rev was VERY buggy.
