I am testing several workstations for deploying ZCM 10 SP2 in my environment and have noticed that in order for the agent to install, the local workstation must be signed in.

What is happening is I get a "Invalid username..." error if I try to deploy the agent to a computer that is only sitting on the Novell Login screen, but if I log in to the computer the deployment runs successfully. This additional step does create a little more work for an after hours deployment if I need to sign in to every machine for the update to work. I would assume that by having correct machine credentials, even if the computer was only at the login screen that the deployment would run, but like I said, it only works if workstation is logged in.

Is this by design or something going on with my system?
