Novell ZENworks 7.5 Asset Management - ZAM7.5


Workstations with nc_workstation.AssetType (Platform) set to "Generic Workstation" should be updated to "Windows Workstation" when we can recognize them as such. If workstation A existed back when the customer had 3.2, then the upgrade to 7.0 added the assettype column and set it to 2 (generic ws). Subsequent scans do not correct this - assettype stays at 2. An initial scan on the same machine shows that the collector does recognize it as Windows Workstation.


Fixed in ZENWorks Asset Management 7.5 Interim Release 3
