Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1


After making change to bundle or policy, running zac ref doesn't pick up the changes until after a 5 minute wait.  Using the ZIcon to refresh does pick up changes.


When the ZIcon generates the refresh, a "zac ref bypasscache" is actually being performed. 
The bypasscache flag instructs the assignment, content and bundle services to return data straight from the database and to skip using data out of the server-side cache, which may be stale. 

Either use bypasscache or wait for the server-side cache to expire (typically 5 minutes), then a "zac ref"  to pick up the incremented version changes.
