Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 7 Support Pack 1- ZDM7 SP1 HP2
Error:"Could not find the ZENWorks Installation Source. Activating manual setup program"
message from debug screen: "tftp error: timeout"
The ZENWorks Imaging Engine could not be fully downloaded to the workstation
This seems to be a timing issue. To make sure that Linuxrc will wait after initializing the network card, until the Imaging Engine is fully downloaded to the Workstation you have to configure the z_*.cmd files from sys:\tftp\cmds with the ānetwait" Kernel parameter.
Edit z_auto.cmd File and add ānetwait=7" after the default Kernel Parameters
APPEND initrd=boot/initrd vga=0x314 install=tftp://$TFTPIP/boot rootimage=/root PROXYADDR=$PROXYADDR TFTPIP=$TFTPIP splash=silent PXEBOOT=YES mode=2 netwait=7
This issue does only occur in busy network environments
