ZENworks Mobile Management Overview  3
ZENworks Mobile Management
Overview
ZENworks Mobile Management is a mobile device management solution that provides organizations with
centralized management and control of the wireless device platforms in their enterprise network.
The ZENworks Mobile Management solution includes an application downloaded to devices, a server
application, and an Update Manager application for applying server software updates.
A single instance of the server application supports a multi-tenant architecture, allowing an enterprise to
manage one or multiple organizations.
The Role of the ZENworks Mobile Management Server
The ZENworks Mobile Management server is capable of managing devices in two capacities.

ActiveSync Present - When an ActiveSync server is part of the environment, the ZENworks Mobile
Management System serves as a gateway that proxies ActiveSync traffic*. Settings for the policies
that govern devices in your environment are configured from ZENworks Mobile Management. For
ActiveSync policies, the ZENworks Mobile Management policy setting takes precedence over the
settings configured on the ActiveSync server. In addition, the ZENworks Mobile Management server
relays all email and PIM data to and from the ActiveSync server. ActiveSync servers using protocol
version 12.0 or greater should be configured to enable Autodiscover so that actual server address
information can be discovered as users enroll.

ActiveSync not Present - For systems that do not use the ActiveSync protocol, the ZENworks
Mobile Management system serves as a stand-in ActiveSync server that synchronizes policies and
issues security command messages. In this scenario, email and PIM are not proxied through the
ZENworks Mobile Management server.
The purpose of taking either of these roles is to control security policies available through ActiveSync and to
allow the ZENworks Mobile Management server to issue remote security command messages.
* The Add Organization Wizard provides an option to disable the ZENworks Mobile Management
server’s function as a proxy for ActiveSync traffic. See Organization Management Guide: MDM Proxy
ZENworks Mobile Management as a Gateway Server
Access. ActiveSync servers can be configured so that users are blocked from accessing the server without
going through ZENworks Mobile Management. This forces even users with devices not running a ZENworks
Mobile Management device application to enroll against the ZENworks Mobile Management server. This
effectively allows you to manage all devices through ZENworks Mobile Management.
In addition, the ZENworks Mobile Management server can be configured to allow only devices that meet
security and usage standards to access the corporate ActiveSync server. The server allows ActiveSync traffic
through if a device is currently using the policies defined for it. When policies are updated in the ZENworks
Mobile Management Web, devices are required to synchronize the updated security policies in order to
continue accessing the corporate server.
ZENworks Mobile Management 3.2.x Server Installation Guide
ZENworks Mobile Management Overview  4
Security. The ZENworks Mobile Management server intercepts security policy updates sent from the
ActiveSync server to prevent them from being sent to the device. Instead, the policies defined in the
ZENworks Mobile Management server are enforced on the device.
Remote wipe commands can be issued from either the ZENworks Mobile Management server or the
ActiveSync server. Remote wipes are a crucial security feature, so if intent to wipe is expressed on the
ActiveSync server, the ZENworks Mobile Management server relays the wipe message to the device.
Authentication. For devices that have an ActiveSync server defined, the ZENworks Mobile Management
server uses the ActiveSync server to authenticate the user’s credentials.
Email and PIM. For devices that have an ActiveSync server defined, the ZENworks Mobile Management
Server relays ActiveSync Email and PIM traffic to and from the ActiveSync server.
ZENworks Mobile Management Device App Enrollment. Users associated with a defined ActiveSync
server install the ZENworks Mobile Management device app and enroll their devices with the ZENworks
Mobile Management server by using their ActiveSync account user credentials.
ZENworks Mobile Management as a Stand-in ActiveSync Server
Security. ZENworks Mobile Management can provide ActiveSync security enforcement even when
ActiveSync is not used for Email or PIM synchronization. When functioning in this role, ZENworks Mobile
Management provides a minimum implementation of ActiveSync to send security policies and remote wipe
messages and to record device statistics when they are sent to the server.
The ZENworks Mobile Management server serves as a stand-in ActiveSync server only when a user is not
associated with a defined ActiveSync server.
Authentication. Devices are authenticated directly against the ZENworks Mobile Management server by
using the password associated with the user account set up on the ZENworks Mobile Management server.
ZENworks Mobile Management Device App Enrollment. Users not interfacing with an ActiveSync server
install the ZENworks Mobile Management device app and enroll their devices with the ZENworks Mobile
Management server by using the credentials associated with the user account set up on the ZENworks
Mobile Management server.

System Architecture
The ZENworks Mobile Management System consists of two components that can be installed on a single or
multiple servers.


SQL Database Component
Web/Http Server Component
In addition to the setups illustrated, a reverse proxy setup is also supported as long as the proxy is sufficiently
scalable. For the long term, redundant proxies might be advisable to help ensure high availability. Achieving
redundancy through SQL and Web clusters is a good way to ensure high availability.

Post-Installation Tasks  18
10. Database Maintenance
 Database Cleanup. Verify that the database cleanup tasks have been enabled. When the
ZENworks Mobile Management server software is installed, tasks are enabled, by default,
with parameters for a system accommodating 1000 devices. Administrators of larger systems
should adjust the task parameters according to the recommendations in the Database
Maintenance Guide. To verify that the jobs are running, access the Database Task Scheduler
from the dashboard and view the task grid. The grid displays which cleanup jobs are enabled,
the last time each job was executed, and when each job will run again.
If a database task has failed to run, you can check the DatabaseTaskSchedulerLogs
database table for errors. See the System Administration Guide: Server Logging.

Back up. Periodically backing up the database is an essential practice for system
maintenance. A daily backup of the database, preferably streamed off site, is recommended
at minimum.
In addition, back up the MDM.ini file on the Web/Http server. This file is found under the
ZENworks directory. Default directory: C:\Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\mobile.
Regular backups insure that data can be recovered if the database becomes compromised.
With both a database back up and a back up of the MDM.ini file, a system can be fully
restored if necessary.
