Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1


If zmd-messages.log is bigger than 1MB, it is zipped upon reboot, even if it is smaller than the maximum configured size (default is 10MB).


This is fixed in version 10.1.1 - see KB 7001406 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.1.1" which can be found at

Additional Information

Because the setting was ignored, it could make troubleshooting harder, since the information may be lost if several reboots were required.
