[DEBUG] [08/27/2008 13:22:06.062] [1368] [ZenworksWindowsService] [19] [] [RegistrationManager] [] [Unable to update device status with any service] [] []


Check that the ZENworks server is running properly: (for Windows or Linux servers: novell-zenworks-configure -c SystemStatus) that it can be reached and that busy status is not returned for other requests in the zmd-messages.log.
Additionally, check the zmd-messages.log: search for ZENIsServerAvavilable for certificate checking to confirm that the authentication URL server FQDN matches the certicificate host.

Additional Information

Login process requires both casa authentication and that the user be registered to the server.  The call to ZENIsServerAvavilable (using standard zcm server protocol) must be successful and the call to registeruser must be sucessful for authentication to complete sucessfully.
