Situation

ERROR "The installation of ZENworks Desktop Management has FAILED"

Middle Tier"
The ZDML 7 failure to install Middle Tier on a SLES 10 server specifies a log file at /var/log/ZENworks_Desktop_Management_InstallLog.log that does not get created.
novell-xtier rpm's don't install to SLES 10 due to dependency failures
