Novell ZENworks Linux Management Linux Management 7 - ZLM7


After running zlm-uninstall on a secondary server, it won’t install again.

The re-install will hang. The SQL process goes to 98.5 % for 8minutes on the primary ZLM server, then will fail and show this in the /var/opt/novell/log/zenworks/zlm-config.log:

Installing into the management zone

Executing command: /opt/novell/zenworks/bin/zlman --host=

-UAdministrator -P**** server-info --server-password

Failed to retrieve the system password from the primary server.

Please refer to the installation documentation and correct the above errors.


To uninstall a ZLM secondary server, you need to first run

zlm-config –-remove-secondary-server=x (where x is the server name)

Then run zlm-uninstall
