Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 2 - 10.2


A bundle action set to run as user fails when user can't access system temp directory to create the temporary results file.
ERROR (from ZCC):


 This is fixed in version 10.2.1 - see KB 7003766 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.2.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Additional Information

Prior to 10.2.1, even when the action is set to run as User, the Output.xml file (containing the results of the action) is written to the system temp directory.  This is typically defined as %WINDIR%\temp on the system drive.
In 10.2.1 and higher, the results file is written to user temp directory when run as user.
