Novell ZENworks 7 Linux Management - ZLM7


If zlmmirror does not complete its initial run for whatever reason the files under the pkg-repo/tmp directory remain there permanently.

Additional Information

On subsequent runs ZLMIRROR see the files in the TMP directory and logs that the package already exists and does not need to be downloaded. When ZLMIRROR completes its run successfully it only cleans up files it downloaded during that new run, but it does not clean the files that were there during a previous run that was similar. Since it is aware of what has been downloaded by reading what is in the TMP directory, it should be able to remove any file pertaining to that mirror operation once it completes its run.
