Zenpack Install Doc WRONG - how do I install?

Testing a base install - just installed the Zenoss-approved VM.

I am trying to install a zenpack following the details in the Core Admin doc. The information in the doc does not match what I am seeing at all. Basically the listed services I see looks nothing like the list in the latest documentation.

What is wrong with the doc It says to collapse a list of sub-services and then stop the list, which stops all the sub-services in the list. The problem is that many core zenoss services are not in the list - they are not sub-services.

The docs show you have two services when you collapse the lists - Internal Services and Zenoss.core. I do not have either of these items and I have a lot more, including Zope and zeneventserver which are needed to install zenpacks.

I need to know what services need to be running when I install a zenpack.

stop the zenoss 5 service
start zeneventserver and zope
give it a few seconds for them to get running then install your zenpack. Read P161-163 closely, they are accurate.

What version of Zenoss 5 is this VM Logon to the Zenoss GUI and use the ADVANCED -> Versions menu.

There have been changes to the layout of Control Center which may explain this.
