Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2


Server pushes a bundle (mandatory) with dry run, ZMD tries a dry run on the agent and acknowledges the scheduled action sent by server.

Next agent refresh, the bundle is installed


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

Root Cause:
On next refresh on client, server does not send the scheduled action again (since acknowledged) and hence the information about dry run and allow removals is not sent to the device.

ZMD sees the bundle as a mandatory bundle and hence installs it.
