Great stuff guys. I'm in the process of making my first W7 image that if all goes well in testing W7 will start to be deployed. Any additional knowledge is greatly appreciated!

Be aware, ZCM 10 (ZENworks Configuration Management) is a full desktop management suite to manage Win2000 thru Win7.  It needs a fair amount of configuration to work properly all of which can be found in various manuals if you have the time to do all of that reading.  I'm teaching a Novell course on ZCM 10.3 this week (finishing today).  Configuration, discovery, deployment, policy creation, imaging, etc. are all covered.  While no-where near as complex to setup and make work as any other desktop management suite (SCCM, Altiris, etc.) there is configuration required to be successful.

I dled ZENworks 10.3 CM standard and when I try just try to install it on a W7 Pro machine it gives me:

Unsupported Operating System

Your Operating System ( W7 6.1.x.x) is not currently supported as a ZENworks server

After it fails, W7 asks me if I want to reinstall with recommended settings and now it says (MS Windows XP (5.1.2.0) SP2) is not currently supported as a ZENworks server.

What happened is you tried to install the ZCM Server side which is only supported on Windows 2003 or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.  Again, you have to have a ZCM server in place and then install the ZENworks Adaptive Agent (ZAA) onto each of the supported clients such as Win7 so you can deploy bundles, image, take remote control, and scan for inventory.

Thank you. Need to take your ZCM 10.3 course, too bad today was last day. Looks like more people will need to be involved in this.

My company can assist with a deployment of ZCM10.3 to get you going with Win7 if you've got a Win2003 or SLES10 server available.  Not sure if you can see my email or not in the profile about contacting me.
