Novell ZENworks Asset Management 7 - ZAM7
Novell ZENworks Asset Management 3.3 - ZAM3.3


ZEN Asset Management Report from a IBM AIX 4.3 station shows no CPU speed.


It appears that AIX 4.3 can't gather the CPU speed, this is seems to be a limitation with the AIX 4.3
AIX 5.1 does not have this issue.
Workaround: To gather the CPU speed run "uname -m" on the AIX box and cross reference on info on IBM's web site. http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=isg3T1000107

Additional Information

ZEN Asset Management uses SYSINFO to gather hardware information to be put into the .UIF file to be sent to the database. AIX version 4.3 is unable to gather the CPU speed.
