Installing ZENworks Linux Management 7.3 Agent on Remote Servers

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.

Here’s how I did it.

AppNote: Advanced patching of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 with ZENworks Linux Management (ZLM) 7.2

Freshly updated with reader suggestion. ZLM 7.2 is a powerful Linux systems management suite, that provides centralized control of up to hundreds of managed devices. One of the main capabilities is automated system patching, but by default ZLM 7.2 adopts the classic software package overlay approach, also for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 devices. In this document we will thus explore how the native mechanisms of ZLM 7.2 can be used to orchestrate advanced ZYPP-based patching of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 managed devices.
