Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Support Pack 1 - ZDM7 SP1 Imaging


When viewing the DNS servers set via zisedit dnsserverx, zisview shows a different index to that used to set the dnsserver. zisview shows the indexes for the dnsservers as [0],[1], etc., but the zisedit command requires the use of 1,2, etc.
For example, at the bash prompt in the ZEN imaging environment, issue the command
zisedit DNSServerCount=2
(note that this works) then issue the command
zisedit DNSServer1=
the message "Unknown parameter (0):'dnsserver1='" will be displayed.


a Fixed in ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 3a, see KB 3484245 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management" which can be found at
