SMS versus Zenworks

By YellowMan ·
We are in the middle of a debate on which product to use. I have heard a lot about Zenworks working without a Netware client. Is this true and where can i find detailed information about it. This is time-critical decision to be made by Dec 7 thats why I'm mortgaging so many points!

Greetings YellowMan,

You can find some very detailed information about how the two compare by reading this PC Magazine/ZDNet article called, "Systems Management Shoot-out". It's a detailed comparison of Zenworks versus SMS.

(REMOVE SPACES if any snuck into the pasted link.)

Best of luck,

Maxwell

To answer your question, ZENworks is a bundle of tools. Depending on what you need to do, you may or may not need a certain agent or so. For example, if you don't wish to distribute applications, you won't need the NAL (Novell Application Launcher) service for NT/2000 machines. However, for any of the components you need the Novell Client at least. You can log in into NetWare 6 without a Novell client, but if you want to take advantage of NDS and its bells and whistles, (like what ZEN does)you need a Novell client.

More info on ZEN is here:
