ZLM 7.2 IR hot patch 1 breaks zlm-config. When zlm-config is executed from the command line the following is shown:
ERROR: File"/opt/novell/zenworks/lib/install/zlmconfig.py", line 21, in ?
import ZLMInstallLib
File"/opt/novell/zenworks/lib/install/ZLMInstallLib.py", line 24, in ?
import common
File"/opt/novell/zenworks/lib/install/common.py", line 72, in ?
f = open(get_release_file(), 'r')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:'/opt/novell/zenworks/bin/data/zenworks-release'


For ZLM 7.2 IR1 Hot Patch 1 there is a new package that needs to be installed:"novell-zenworks-zlm-release". In order for this package to be properly installed the readme instructions from the mailer need to be carefully followed (prior to applying this hot patch). But since you are reading this TID, it means that you already applied the patch, and you are looking for a way to overcome the problem described above. If that is case, in order to fix the problem with zlm-config the following must be done:
From the command line run:
rug in novell-zenworks-zlm-release
For other devices (that have still not received Hot Patch 1), it is recommended that you follow the instructions in the readme (especially the modifications needed in ZCC).

Additional Information

1. install 7.2 IR1 from the ISO
2. Apply HP1
3. Run zlm-config --restart
