Environment

Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Support Pack 1 - ZCM 11 SP1 Installation - Agent
Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Support Pack 1 - ZCM 11 SP1 System Update

Situation

During a system update from ZCM 10.3.3 to ZCM 11.1 some managed devices would not update as they should have. To overcome this issue the agent cleanup tool was used and then the ZCM 11.1 agents were installed. After this process ZCM login would fail. In the zmd-messages.log the error shown was:

Resolution

  1. Uninstall the agent and the CASA components.
  2. In Windows Explorer right click on C:\Windows\Assembly\Novell.Casa.Client.Auth and select uninstall.
  3. In Windows Explorer right click on C:\Windows\Assembly\Novell.Casa.MiCasa and select uninstall.
  4. In Windows Explorer search C:\Windows and C:\Program Files for *casa*.dll and delete any CASA dll files that are found.
  5. Reboot the device and then reinstall the ZCM 11.1 agent.

Cause

Local corruption was not allowing the CASA components to uninstall or be upgraded as they should.
