We are using ZCM10 and we're having problems with deploying patches remotely. That is running PM after hours by waking a PC, logging, deploying the patch and closing down. Something I was given to believe that ZCM would handle.

I'm being told by colleagues the reason that its not working is that we don't have AD and therefore MS patches won't work. We only have eDirectory for logins/GroupWise/ authentication etc.

So is it really necessary to have a domain running so that ZCM can wake up PC's login, deploy the patches, remediate and move on?
Many thanks
