Bundles do not show up when typing " zlmmirror slb " but bundles are actually in the catalog.
New bundles can be added to an existing catalog and the new one doesn't show up for a number of hours.


To check what time it is set to do the following:

1. su postgres
2. psql zenworks (zenworks is the name of the db and this could be different)
3. select now(); (This will print out the time and time zone like this:

2005-11-07 18:22:53.603443+00

4. The +00 on the end shows that it is in UTC time zone. There are some lines at the end of the postgresql.conf file that are set during the install of ZLM but if a custom configuration of postgres was performed, the lines may need to be added. Below is what should be at the bottom of /var/lib/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf:

# zlm datamodel configured #
max_connections = 500
shared_buffers = 2048
sort_mem = 2048
max_fsm_pages = 40000
vacuum_mem = 16384
tcpip_socket = true
timezone = GMT

5. Restart the postgres database after making this change by the command "/etc/init.d/postgresql restart"

Additional Information

This symptom only happens if a custom install of Postgres Database was performed. If the default ZLM install is used, the symptom will not occur.
When a a bundle action is submitted to a catalog, the bundle action it does not appear until later when mirroring or listing the bundles in a mirror via the zlmmirror slb command.
Typing " zlman ql" to list the items in the queue, there are a number of them that are not processed.
The timezone on the server may not be configured correctly in the postgres database.
