ZEN 7 AWI service unloading on OES Linux.


Fixed in ZENworks 7 Desktop Management on Linux Service Pack 1 Interim Release 4 Hot Patch 1. see KB 3484245 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
Workaround: Create a cron job that looks like this:
31 *  * * *    /opt/novell/zenworks/bin/ZDMstart
Since ZDMstart checks whether or not a service is running before it attempts to do anything, this seemed the simplest near-term solution.
