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


When migrating an application that has a MSI based dependency, the migration of the parent application will fail when the app object with the MSI has over 49 characters in the name.


This is fixed in version 10.1.3 - see KB 7002526 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.1.3" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Additional Information

This happens when an MSI app with 49 characters is setup, then a  separate app that is dependent on the 49 character MSI app is also setup.  Migration Wizard will then fail if the 49 character MSI is used in migration. This works fine if the dependency isn't an MSI based application.
