You’ve followed all the best practices and documentation. Your eDirectory trees are healthy and replicating with no errors. Time is in synchronization and ndsrepair shows no errors or external references hanging out there.

Like me, many of you have multiple Linux servers to contend with and maintain. Even though ZENworks Linux Management allows you to do numerous, helpful tasks with these servers, you still have to install the agent. Not having the luxury of direct access to these servers and I did not include the ZLM 7.3 Agent in the server build, I had a dilemma. How do I get the servers to install this 600+MB CD image without outside intervention? Once I had burned the ISO to a CD, I found that there are some hard links that can’t be copied, because they point to targets that will be used after the install completes.

There are specifics, but here’s what I used and suggest to make sure that you don’t hit any road blocks.
