Novell ZENworks Asset Management 7 - ZAM7


The problem is that the collector code will crash (meaning no inventory for the scan) if it finds a file without an extension due to a code change made in patch 7 which addressed an Antispyware recognition issue.  However, it turns out that all of the MS SQL Server fingerprints use a file without an extension to get the edition of that product.


Support does have a Field Test File if necessary that can be used until the release of Interim Release 8 for SP1
