Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1 Remote Management


Every time the Remote Management agent starts, or a session is established, log files are created at the root of the C: drive


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

With this fix, log files will be created in "C:\Windows\temp\ZENworks\Logs".
To have the logs created in a different location, create a new registry value, a string,
for ZCM 10.3 onwards,
for earlier versions,

When the "Novell ZENworks Remote Management Service" is next restarted, the log files will be created in the location specified by the registry.
