I am working in ZEN works in tree which is having 30000
objects in.

Concept is quite simple.suppose you have 5000 computers and you want to install some software to all nodes.(say
Msoffice) think of how difficult that is manually go each pc put cd and install.

ZEN works is zeno effect networks from novell.

by default when you install some software it may do smoe of the following changes in your system.

in registry
in file system (creating directory copying somr file )
ini file adding
seeting environment.

what zen will do is when you are installing a software it will capture what are all the changes it si doing to that computer and it will capture that in *.AOT file.

then you can create a application object and asso that to the users.now user pc will get the changes updated in their system when they login.(means it is installing MSoffice ).so now by installing MSoffice in one sytem you manged to installation in 5000 systems.this what ZEN wil do.

for more informantion how to do and all you can visit novell site.there is info like feeding to you.
all the best.


Regards
Moorthy

hi it seems tht its nothing more than remote instllation where u put the setup filesin one place and run installation over a network..still

registry and ini modifications snapshot ad merging it to an ew computer without those software is not new..but there should be something more...

Yes. that is nothing more.

Before installation -copy A
 
snapshot.exe will take a photocopy of your no of reg entries,no of files and folder,no of ini files & current environmnet setting.

After installing your software -copy B

now also after installatin it will do the same testing.and note down what changes.


now copy b - copy a = changes made by your newly installed software.so it will created an AOT file which contains
info about changes. for AOT u will create application object.then Asso that object to user.

and more over you can do following reg application object.

1 -force run  type - need to run whenever use login.
2. on demand - need to distribute whenever user click icon.

and you can paly around LOT of seetting.go thru doc it will give you more info.
