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


After updating to 10.2.1, if the initrd file was previously modified, the imaging kernel would not load and the error: 'Could not find the ZENworks Installation Source' would be displayed.


This is fixed in version 10.3 - see KB 7005455 "ZENworks Configuration Management SP3 (10.3) - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Additional Information

The Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\share\tftp\boot\linux and root files are updated correctly during the 10.2 to 10.2.1 update, however the previously modified Initrd file was not.  So when PXE booting a workstation to do an image, the kernel was looking for drivers in the old 10.2 file path.  This problem does not happen if the Initrd file is the default.
