Environment

Novell ZENworks 7.5 Asset Management - ZAM7.5

Situation

When the Mac collector runs and reports the inventory, the Uname is picked up instead of the Sharing Name. Using Uname can result in the same name for multiple Mac macines.

Resolution

Fixed in ZENworks Asset Management 7.5 Interim Release 10 or newer

Interim Releases can be scheduled to run automatically or can be downloaded manually at https://download.novell.com. The Interim releases can be set up within the ZAM Manager for the Task server to check the site on a scheduled basis, and download and apply them automatically. Please refer to the Help Section details of how to set up automatic downloads if desired.

Each interim release is cumulative. If Interim Release 10 is not available due to a newer interim release being placed on the website, be assured that the code needed is in the later release.
