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


If a Satellite Device is at the end of a very slow link the current content replication schedule (ZENworks Configuration Management 10.2.2 and below) does not allow for specific days, dates or times to be set.
Disabling the Content Replication Schedule would allow a "zac cdp " to be scheduled via an alternate scheduling mechanism.


This is fixed in version 10.2.1 - see KB 7003766 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.2.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Note: ZENWorks Configuration Management 10.3 includes a new comprehensive content scheduling feature to allow for many content replication requirements.

Additional Information

To disable the content replication schedule on a Satellite device:

Create a String value HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell\Zenworks\DisableContentReplicationSchedule and set the Value to "true ".
In the properties file, /etc/opt/novell/zenworks/conf/ include the line:
DisableContentReplicationSchedule=true ”.

All content replication must then be forced with the "zac cdp " command.
