Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2
RedHat Linux


Errors occur when trying to use ZLM to patch 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 servers


To obtain access to a hot patch with the fix for this problem, follow the instructions in KB 3469853 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management" which can be found at

Additional Information

The issue arises because Red Hat have begun to install both 32-bit and 64-bit RPMs on 64-bit servers. ZLM did not correctly recognise the 32-bit RPMs.
