Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Registration


The following error is seen in the Event Viewer when installing the ZCM Agent:
"Failed to parse Config: ZENPreAgent.exe.cfg at line 2 character 37"

This is due to an "&" character in the name of the registration key when creating a custom deployment package.


This is fixed in version 10.1 - see KB 7001200 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with SP1 (10.1)" which can be found at
