Environment

Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management - ZDM7
Novell ZENworks 6.5 Desktop Management - ZDM6.5

Situation

If an MSI application object is exported as an AOT from ConsoleOne (Tools->ZENworks Utilities->Application Launcher Tools->Export Application Object) then the description field stored in that AOT is truncated at 249 characters, so that if the AOT is imported, only the first 249 characters of the description are available.
