Interim Releases can be scheduled to run automatically or can be downloaded manually at https://download.novell.com/patch/finder The Interim releases can be set up within the ZAM Manager for the Task server to check the site on a scheduled basis, and download and apply them automatically. Please refer to the Help Section details of how to set up automatic downloads if desired.
Each interim release is cumulative. If Interim Release xx is not available due to a newer interim release being placed on the website, be assured that the code needed is in the later release.

Workaround: Install a fresh install of ZAM 7 sp1 not from an upgrade and copy the FileStore\Setup\Client directory to the workstation to run the install.
