Running novell-zenworks-configure closes DOS Window after task completion

Environment

Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Support Pack 1 - ZCM 11 SP1
Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management

Situation

The novell-zenworks-configure command on a Windows server always closes the command prompt window after completing a task. This forces the Admin to reopen a new DOS window and retype the whole command rather than just being able to up-arrow to the previous command.

Resolution

For ZCM 11: This is fixed in version 11.2 - see KB 7010044 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Workaround:
To patch an existing 11.x server, the last line of "%ZENWORKS_HOME%/bin/novell-zenworks-configure.bat" needs to be modified from
    exit %RETURNCODE%
to
    exit /B %RETURNCODE%
