Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 2 - 10.2 Bundles


The option "Create shortcut for the source file(s)" for the "Copy File(s)" action will, by default, create a shortcut with the name of the executable. If this is amended, the shortcut is not created.


This is fixed in version 10.2.2 - see KB 7004803 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.2.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Additional Information

To amend the name of the shortcut, it is necessary to amend an existing action: for example, create a "Copy File(s)" action as shown below:

Save this action, then open the action

If the file name is changed from "" in this case, the shortcut is not created when the bundle is deployed
