Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2


Currently there is no "rug" command to view policies associated to a device.


To obtain access to a hot patch with the fix for this problem, follow the instructions in KB 3469853 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management" which can be found at

Additional Information

rug now has new option "pl"
  • rug --help includes option pl (policy list)
  • rug pl --help displays detailed information on the option pl.
  • rug pl displays policies that are assigned to the devices

    a) #|Policy | Policy type| Last Enforced at | Next Enforced at

    b) if the policy is of type firefox/gconf/epiphiny/sled/nld/evolution
    then the next and last enforce will include User Login

    c) All other types will display the scheduled time assigned to the policies.
  • If rug pl is issued at the time of zmd starting it will display "Policymanager not intialized please try later."
