Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1


Using disk free system requirement, disk size requirement etc. on a bundle fails the bundle on some non US English operating systems (reproduced with French).


This is fixed in version 10.2 - see KB 7003225 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.2" which can be found at
