Novell ZENworks 7.5 Asset Management - ZAM7.5


When running a Network Discovery on ZAM 7.5 on a server with German locale settings, the community string "public" may not be used in discovery, even though it has been entered into the list of strings in Network Discovery, Options.


Fixed in ZENworks Asset Management 7.5 Interim Release 10 or newer

Interim Releases can be scheduled to run automatically or can be downloaded manually at https://download.novell.com. The Interim releases can be set up within the ZAM Manager for the Task server to check the site on a scheduled basis, and download and apply them automatically. Please refer to the Help Section details of how to set up automatic downloads if desired.

Each interim release is cumulative. If Interim Release 10 is not available due to a newer interim release being placed on the website, be assured that the code needed is in the later release.

As a workaround, remove "public" from the list of strings. It will still be used by ZAM, as it is the default, so it is not needed in the list.

Additional Information

The user interface should prevent you from entering "public" into the list of strings, because it is not necessary.
