Novell ZENworks 7 Server Management Support Pack 1 - ZSM7 SP1 Tiered Electronic Distribution (TED)
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 2


Distributor can hang due to many java threads in a wait/sleep status in a NetWare environment. This has been known to happen when distributor is used for very large numbers of distributions in a short period of time. This can be seen in a core dump with the Distributor in the hung state.


Fixed in ZENworks 7 Server Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 3a, see KB 3809227 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7 Server Management" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
