Novell ZENworks Linux Management Linux Management 7 - ZLM7


If a bundle contains a package that has the same NEVRAT and different checksum to one that already exists in ZLM then the bundle is created but it contains no packages.

It is not possible to repopulate the empty bundle with zlmmirror.


Fix included in hot patch, follow the instructions in KB 3469853 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management" which can be found at Novell Support
Delete the bundle and run the zlmmirror command for that bundle with the --force-nevra switch.

For example:
'zlmirror mirror -c example.xml -v --force-nevra'
