Environment


Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Migration

Situation

ZEN Migration utility migrates network-based installs into the repository.

Using a  ZENworks 7 application that is MSI-based, installing from the network (ie, \\server\path\msifile.msi), when the Migration utility runs, it imports every single file from that directory into the content server.

Resolution

Migrating MSI applications will upload all the files in the network location to the content system if the path is resolvable.
 
In order to avoid migrating all application files to content server, migrate the application as "Install network application".
This is set by disabling the "Upload Application to content server" option in the Settings->Applications section.
The application will migrate as "Install network MSI" and will not be uploaded to the content server
