Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 7 - ZDM7 Automatic Workstation Import
Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)
Novell SUSE Linux


When importing a workstation to ZENworks on a server running OES Linux, the workstation object may have one or more attributes missing.
If "Disable User History" is checked, then the workstaiton ID and workstation object are not entered into the local registry.


Fixed in ZENworks 7 with SP1 Desktop Management, available at

Additional Information

AWSI was not importing workstations correctly unless it had a local replica of the partition that contained the workstation container.
AWSI did not correctly deal with "Disable User History"
