Thread: Do the Windows agents still use netidentity?

    Do the Windows agents still use netidentity?

    Older versions of the ZenWorks agents used dedicated version of netidentity
    that was not compatable with the version that shipped with the windows
    client?

    Is this still the case or does the client team need to update their
    installer so that it will not error out when it sees the ZCM agents?

    Thanks

    Is anyone in the ZCM team in a position to tell the Client team :)

    By the looks of things the Client install process just looks for a basic
    ZenWorks entry in the
    registry, ZCM creates the entry but with the version no. of 10. The result
    is that you are
    unable to install netidentity.

    I believe that is correct.

    ZCM no longer uses NetIdentity.

    I asked about this and how Novell was going to reconcile with the
    NetStorage team but never got an answer.

    The ONLY thing I can think of is to install NetIdentity as part of the
    Novell Client and then put ZCM on.

    Or just live without it and use iChain or NAM and have it SSO into
    NetStorage, but I believe that's the only thing left that uses XTier
    authentication anymore.
