Environment

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

Situation

When setting an action to delete a registry key or value, if that key/value does not exist, the action fails with an error.

ERROR: The operations specified in "" action could not be completed due to an error

Resolution

This is fixed in version 10.2 - see KB 7003225 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with SP2 (10.2)" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Workaround:
Mark the action "Continue on Failure"

Additional Information

The action is considered to have failed if any one of the changes fails: but if, for example, the action tries to delete two values, and the first one is missing, the second value will still be deleted correctly. Marking the action "Continue on Failure" allows the rest of the bundle to complete. Note that this means that other possible errors, such as a user not having permission to update a key, would be ignored as well.
