Hi,
first of all I'm quite new in Zenworks.

It's a little bit difficult to describe this problem. I would like to
avoid to explain all previous steps to avoid confusion so I'll reduce
to the mininum number of infos.

So,
I have a workstation that I don't want manage with Zen. I want only
execute imaging of its disk.
This machine name is, for example WS0999 and is in a context
cn=WS0999.ou=workstation.o=IT.

Now I have totally disabled any zenworks server on the oes server
running this eDir.

Now I have created a new OES Sp2 machine, with a new tree, CIT.

I have changed the name of the workstation, locally on the windows
workstation (this workstation is not managed, there is no reference in
the workstations import, etc. etc)
to a temporary name LX001.

So now I try to start the proxy-dhcp and all the other services on the
new novell OES sp2 machine and I put the DHCP, temporarly, on a totally
other machine.

So, if I start the workstation with the PXE, it obtain the IP from the
new dhcp, try to connect to the new OES SP2 server with tree CIT
correctly and after close the pxe boot operation.

If I go to the log of the pxe boot menu at
/var/log/zenworks/preboot/novell-zimgdbg.log
, I see from the log that the machine is taken with the old name...
just to help you to understand, I see:

So it seems that the machine receive again the same old reference
name....but from where?
THe new OES has not defined that machine in its tree (that has also a
different root), the workstation is on pxe and the old OES with the old
tree has NO Zen or other services loaded.

Is it possible that the old context name is stored on some place on the
workstation and it is sent? I think that is not possible on the disk
because the machine is not loading anything yet, it is on the pxe boot
menu!!! There is something that I don't understand.... I don't
understand where the old context name of the workstations is stored and
retrieved....

Thanks for your help,
Zak
