Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2


After applying Hot Patch 1 for ZLM 7.2, the "tmp" directory in /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/ is deleted. Due to the deletion of the "tmp" directory, adding packages to a bundle using the ZENworks Control Center (ZCC) will fail. This is because the packages imported are downloaded to /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/tmp directory first and then moved to pkg-repo/packages directory.


Create the /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/tmp directory with required ZENworks privileges. This can be done using the following commands:
  1. mkdir -p /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/tmp
  2. chown zenworks:zenworks /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/tmp
  3. Next, verify that the permissions are set to drwxrwsr-x on the tmp directory.
  4. If the permissions need to be changed, you can set them properly by using the following command: chmod 2755 /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/tmp/
