Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


Preboot icon shows installing CASA.msi at 2% indefinitely when deploying PreAgentPackage_Complete to a workstation with the shipping version of ZAM 7.5 agent already installed.


Rebooting the workstation or stopping the ZAM services and rerunning the deployment may help.
