Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1 Zman
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11 Zman
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.1 Zman
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Zman

Situation

After restoring a server with the command
  zman zenserver-restore <file path>
the DeviceGuid and DeviceData should be those from the backup, but they are the same as before the restore

Resolution

For Windows servers: This is fixed in version 10.1.2 - see KB 7001914 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.1.2" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
After applying this update, if a restore is performed on a Windows server, the Novell ZENworks Embedded Data store service has to be started manually.

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

Additional Information

The restore is correctly restoring the DeviceGuid and DeviceData, but the Agent is overwriting them.
