Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management on Linux Support Pack 1 - ZDML7 SP1 Automatic Workstation Import
Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)


If the server policy is configured to create workstation object using the user's OU as part of the workstation object name then the workstation object will fail to be created.


Workaround: Simply removing the OU from the naming policy will allow the workstation to be imported.

Additional Information

The error does not occur if the user's OU is actually ROOT.
This error does not occur under NetWare, just OES Linux.
