Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2
Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management - ZLM7.3


Using the ZCC option "Tools">"Delete Temporary Files" should delete files in the folder /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/tmp but the files are not deleted


This is fixed in ZLM 7.3 Hot Patch 1 - see KB 7003346 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Issue the command:
chown -R zenworks:zenworks /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/tmp

Additional Information

The problem arises because while mirroring the bundles, it is creating the files with root permissions . But when deleting from the server, it will use zenworks permissions.
