Fixed in ZENworks Asset Management 7.5 Interim Release 22 or newer
Interim Releases can be scheduled to run automatically or can be downloaded manually at https://download.novell.com/patch/finder. The Interim releases can be set up within the ZAM Manager for the Task server to check the site on a scheduled basis, and download and apply them automatically. Please refer to the Help Section details of how to set up automatic downloads if desired.
Each interim release is cumulative. If Interim Release 22 is not available due to a newer interim release being placed on the website, be assured that the code needed is in the later release.
Description: Client is sending empty string values for machine name, lanaddress, serial number. When this happens, the server flags the client as Invalid and the client does not progress. Two changes: i) client side * cclient will now restart when the ColW32.exe is updated ii) server side * server will now allow the connection to go through without registering the client when it detects an empty machinename * server checks and adds kb files to the critical file list (requires a client restart) whenever a critical file is to be updated (critical files: cclient.exe, cclientsvc.exe, colw32.exe) * then invalidates the client and waits for the client to restart
