I am currently working on a project to move a ZENworks zone from sles to windows server 2012 and upgrade, via the upgrade path to 11.3.

The server team of the customer has inquired if they can put the primary server on a different domain to the satellites and workstations.

Currently they use remote management, inventory, and bundles. After the move they would like to make more use of User Management and patching.

Aside from firewall considerations, would this be supported by Novell and also does anybody know of any complications this may cause? I can see user management being a problem but could be worked around but would this be supported by Novell if the zone was setup like this?

I have logged a ticket with support but the project is already delayed and would just like to get on with things.

Thank you
