Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2 ir2 hp3


During the install and registration of the ZLM 7.2 agent, if the server is assigned to a server group and assigned an update to deploy during that registration the service stops and the update fails to apply.
Note: The registration of the agent into ZLM appears to be fine, it is the update that seems to fail.


This is fixed in ZLM 7.3 Hot Patch 2/ZLM 7.3 Interim Release 1 - see KB 7003346 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management" which can be found at
Workaround:  Assigning the bundle to install 10 minutes after refresh appears to resolve the issue.
Workaround:  Restarting ZMD with a "rczmd start" appears to finish the installation.
