Environment

Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Support Pack 1 - ZCM 11 SP1 Imaging
Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Support Pack 1 - ZCM 11 SP1 Bundles
Non-English Windows XP Professional

Situation

The ZENworks agent installation path is in a language specific program files folder like C:\Programme in German Windows XP.
A Windows bundle has been prepared with an Add-on Image File
A preboot bundle has been created having a Linked Application Bundle action pointing to above Windows bundle.

Applying this preboot bundle creates files and folders in root of C drive, the folders can not be removed any more by normal means.
The Windows bundle content is still retrieved directly from a content role server instead of from the information applied with the preboot bundle.


Resolution

This is fixed in version 11.2.1 - see KB 7010042 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.21 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7010042

Cause

The ZENworks agent path is not always correctly resolved when applying the add-on image file content. The content is getting applied to the root of C drive in such a case instead of going to %zenworks_home%\work\addons
