Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Deployment
Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management System Update

Situation

Standalone Custom Deployment Packages are rebuilt as Network Deployment Packages by System Update

Resolution

This is fixed in version 10.1.2 - see KB 7001914 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.1.2" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Additional Information

Steps to duplicate:
1) From a ZCM 10.1 system, create a custom agent deployment package that is "standalone".  

2) Go to http://<server>/zenworks-setup and the package can be seen.  It will be over 80Meg in size and labeled "standalone"
3) Apply System Update 10.1.1.
4) After update is baselined and all deployment packages are automatically updated, go to http://<server>/zenworks-setup and the package is now around 500K.  It is mislabled as a "standalone", but it is really been transformed into a "network" install.
