Setting Up a Service Location Policy Package—The ZENworks Database Policy
Many of the agents in the system want to record information into the ZENworks database that is installed on your system. The ZENworks for Servers 3 agents record logging and other information directly to the database and do not rely on the SNMP system to record events. For these
The Database Location policy then refers to a ZENworks database object in the directory (which was created at installation time), which in
The Database Location page enables you to browse to the database object in the directory that represents the database that you want to use. All policy engines and distributor agents associated with this policy then log information into this database. Figure 5.14 is a snapshot of this page.

In ZENworks for Desktops 3, only the inventory agent for the server looks for this policy. Other agents must be given this policy through the Distributed Policy Package.
NDS Rights, Other, and Rights to Files and Folders pages are described earlier in the chapter in the "Setting Up a Container Policy Package" section.
To set the Inventory Management database, you must go to the Inventory Management Database tab, click the Browse button to the right of the field, and then browse to and select the database object that you want. This places the DN of the database object into the field.
To set the Policy/Distribution Management database, you must go to the Policy/Distribution Management Database tab, click the Browse button to the right of the field, and then browse to and select the database object that you want. This places the DN of the database object into the field.
ZENworks for Servers 3 cannot use the database until a database location policy is set and found by the policy engines and distributor agents. Remember that Service Location Packages can be associated only with containers, not directly with servers or with server groups.
Setting Up the Server Policy Package—The NetWare Set Parameters Policy
This policy is a plural policy, which means that you can create multiple instances of this policy in a single policy package. You create this policy by clicking the Add button at the bottom of the main Server Policy Package screen. When you click the Add button, you are prompted to select a policy and to name the policy. You need to select NetWare Set Parameters for the policy and type a unique policy
After you add the policy, you are guided through a wizard to collect potential parameters. Because the set parameters on NetWare are dynamic and can be enhanced by various sets of NLMs, there isn't a known set of set parameters. Consequently, ZENworks for Servers 3 walks you through a wizard that goes to an identified NetWare server (the server must be running the ZENworks for Servers Policy engine) and queries the server for the set of parameters. This list is then transmitted back to the wizard.
To complete the wizard and to administer the policy, follow these steps:
