ATT8231 - Creating a Customized USB Thumb Drive for ZCM Imaging

Session Speakers
Session Description


Course Description Learn the techniques required to create a customized version of the Novell ZENworks Configuration Management (ZCM) imaging distribution that can be booted from a USB thumb drive. You will learn how to modify the system resource files of the bootcd_tntfs.iso file to include a custom imaging menu that launches your custom bash imaging scripts. This customized ISO file can then be used by the ZENUsbcreator utility introduced in ZENworks Configuration Management 11 SP3, to create a bootable USB thumb drive that contains your modifications to the ZCM imaging distribution.

This session focuses on the procedure required to build a customized USB thumb drive for ZCM imaging. It is not intended to teach you how to develop your own bash imaging scripts. The scripts that you will be including on your thumb drive have been developed for you. (Note: Novell Training Services offers a three day on-line course entitled “Leveraging Scripted Imaging in ZENworks Configuration Management.” This course teaches the bash scripting language and how to use it for imaging purposes.)

Intended Audience This session is designed for those ZCM network administrators and engineers who are responsible for deploying images to users' desktops and laptops. This session will be especially useful for those administrators:

• Who desire to use their standard corporate images for small remote or branch office locations that don't have ZCM Imaging Satellite Servers

• Or, those administrators who simply want a highly portable imaging solution to carry around in their pocket

Prerequisites The student should have the following experience and skills prior to attending this session:

• Has supported Windows 7 workstations in a networked environment

• Has experience using the ZENworks Control Center

• Understands the basics of ZCM imaging. This includes understanding ZCM imaging related terminology such as: Preboot Bundles, Hardware Rules and ZMG files

• Understands the basic differences between imaging a PXE-enabled workstation and imaging a workstation using a bootable CD
