Novell ZENworks Linux Management Linux Management 7 - ZLM7


Unable to manage a bundle via ZCC when the message queue for the event log has 250,000 entries.


This is fixed in ZLM 7.3 Hot Patch 2/ZLM 7.3 Interim Release 1 - see KB 7003346 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management" which can be found at Novell Support

Additional Information

  1. Create a bundle with a PreInstall script that will error out if re-run
  2. Deploy the bundle to a managed server
  3. Modify the bundle and bump the version
  4. The script will fail adding an entry to the Event log for the bundle and the device.
  5. The device attempts to re-run the transaction continuously adding an entry to the log for each failure. Allow this to run until 200k+ messages are logged.
  6. Attempt to access the bundle from ZENworks Control Center (ZCC) to modify (correct) the script -- unable to do so.
