ZDM 7 SP1 MT install is not editing the autoexec.ncf properly, replacing NCPL.NLM with LIBNICM.NLM.

Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Support Pack 1 - ZDM7 SP1 Middle Tier
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 6


After installing ZENworks 7 SP1 Middle Tier, the correct entry is not added to the AUTOEXEC.NCF. NCPL.NLM is being loaded when it should not be.


Fixed in ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 1, available at https://download.novell.com

As a workaround, remove NCPL.NLM from the AUTOEXEC.NCF and replace it with LIBNICM.NLM.

Additional Information

Starting from ZEN7 SP1, ncpl.nlm should *not* be explicitly loaded. The correct sequence should be:

search add sys:\XTier
load libnicm.nlm

The second line (load libnicm.nlm) too, is not necessary. However, we put it to catch any case of any NLM that is not correctly linked with autoload dependency. ZEN7SP1 install should have replaced"load ncpl" line with "load libnicm" line.
