    Pre-Agent ONLY install?

    I feel like I'm missing something here. I would like to reach in and
    install the pre-agent WITHOUT it going further and installing the agent.

    I'd like to be able to prep these systems without installing them and
    then doing the installs when the staff are on holiday break.

    What about installing the agent, running "zac unr" to unregister the
    machine.

    Delete the GUID in the registry in hklm/software/novell/zenworks
    Then create the image.

    I haven't really tested this theory that much, but I believe it works.

    Well, that actually creates more work for me. We have to go touch a
    number of systems for something totally unrelated to ZEN. I was hoping
    to do a very minimal, non-invasive prep at this time so that I can reach
    out and touch the machines when I am ready to do the ZEN install. The
    discovery processes that I'm running are not giving me much data for
    firewall and vlan'ing reasons.

    I guess what I'll do instead is to have the machines configured so that
    they let me in when I need to get there.

    Thanks tho.

    Do these machines already have ZEN 7 agent on them?

    If so, distribute the pre-agent files to them now, and then schedule a
    zen app to run the now-local pre-agent.

    There are a ton of ways to make the machines to a pull, including a Novell
    or MS Login script.
