Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2 IR1


In servers with Zenworks Linux Management 7.2 IR1 (with or without HP1), OES 2 Linux devices register as "oes-10". But the target platform for OES 2 update packages coming from nu.novell.com is "sles-10", thus making it imposible to deploy them to your devices.


OES 2 agents should get registered as "sles-10" to Zenworks Linux Management 7.2 IR1 HP2 servers.

Note: This TID is applicable to ZENworks Linux Management 7.2 IR1 servers having OES2 Managed devices
registered to it.

1] Create a remote execute policy with following as script lines.

/etc/init.d/atd start

echo"#!/bin/sh"> /tmp/zlmref
echo "rug cc">> /tmp/zlmref
echo "rug restart -f">> /tmp/zlmref

chmod +x /tmp/zlmref

at now +10 minutes -f /tmp/zlmref

2] Follow the below steps on the server within 10 mins. If more time is expected, please
change the " at now +10 minutes" to required amount of mins.

3] Assign this policy to all OES2 Devices.

4] Make sure this policy is pulled down by the devices by refreshing the OES2 devices from ZCC.

5] Upgrade the rpm novell-zenworks-zlm-release on the server.
