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


The Inventory-only agent cannot register a device if one already exists in the database with the same hostname (if the full agent is used instead, the second device has the MAC address appended to the name, to distinguish it).


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
