Novell ZENworks 7 Server Management Support Pack 1 - ZSM7 SP1 Tiered Electronic Distribution (TED)


When you set a prompt variable on a Distributor, the prompt does not change from:
"ZENworks Server Management>"


Fixed in ZENworks 7 Server Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 3a, see KB 3809227 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7 Server Management" which can be found at

Additional Information

On a subscriber, you can set a variable prompt (%prompt%) to change the ZENworks for Servers console prompt automatically. This is done either by setting the variable on the Tiered Electronic Distribution policy in the Service Location Package or for external subscribers, by modifying the Tednode.policies file. This will change the prompt on the subscriber.
