Migrated app folders have \ instead of / in the path

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management


When using the Migration Utility, applications are migrated with folders, and the path to the folders includes a backslash "\". In ZCM, the locations of the bundles use a forward slash "/" so the migrated folders are not getting placed in the right locations.

For Example, if the an application folder was created with the path"\Spreadsheets" and the application resided in the bundle folder called "Spreadsheets", the application would appear in the"Spreadsheets\Spreadsheets" folder while it would be expected that"Spreadsheets" would only be displayed once.

If the folder path is preceded by a "/", then only the application path specified is shown.


This is fixed in version 10.0.3 - see KB 3486285 "Updates to ZENworks 10 Configuration Management" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Additional Information

When the Migration Tool was migrating folders, it was using a "\" instead of a "/" as the leading character.
