“With close to 2,800 endpoints throughout the city, ensuring security and compliance is a major challenge,” said Paul Pedron, Senior Network System Specialist for the City of Fresno, California. “With Novell ZENworks 11 Support Pack 2, we can easily apply all facets of endpoint management – including asset, configuration, patch management, and selectively, full disk encryption – across our entire IT landscape using a single solution. As a result, our IT department is less fragmented, more productive and able to manage all 2,800 endpoints from anywhere.”

Novell Customer Experience
Novell delivered on their commitment to be with us every step of the way throughout the Lighthouse Early Adopter Program project. It began with an initial assessment of our business and technical level requirements followed by a plan of action, time line and recommendations about our current environment. Following, their engineers began working with our Staff to upgrade the existing Zen 10.3.1 environment to version 11 SP2. Upgrading the three primary servers and external database was seamless. However, a few minor issues did occur. Zenworks reporting during the installation had failed. Patch management reporting stated unsuccessful, although, successful. One of the CDP installations also had failed. Nevertheless, through coordinated conference calls with Novell Database Engineers and Developers, Novell and Staff were able to resolve the issues quickly and easily.
“Their commitment to our success played a key role in the successful deployment to ZCM Version 11 SP2 to select sites in the environment. Not only did they help us fix some of the issues we were experiencing, they helped us build a solid desktop management solution. We look forward to a full-blown deployment. Novell ZENworks Configuration Management will bring greater consistency to our desktop environment though reliability in application and patch distribution and assets management.”

“I am looking forward to supporting our Apple and Linux computers in the same manner we currently support our PC’s. This allows our support technicians to focus on support and not learning another tool.”
