Novell ZENworks Linux Management 7 - ZLM7


Creating a bundle in the ZCC returns an error.
Error Details:Invalid State.This is most often caused by using the browser back button too much or using ZENworks Control Center from two browser windows on the same machine.


There is no workaround, since the issue is related to Firefox. Multiple tabs in Firefox share the same back end session in Tomcat. When enough changes are made in one session, the other session is invalidated because ZCC only keeps a fixed number of view state versions in the Tomcat session.
