Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 7 - ZDM7 Imaging - Support Pack 1


The file /bin/zenAdvancedScript is not populated when the script is too large and is therefore not run.


Fixed in ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 3a, available at Novell Downloads.

Additional Information


1) Create a ZENworks Image object in eDirectory.

4) Associate this to a WorkStation Object.
5) On the Workstation Object -> ZENworks Imaging -> Configuration ->"Put an image on this workstation on next boot".
