Novell ZENworks 7.5 Asset Management - ZAM7.5


In the option set, if an IP address is used to filter for criteria, the IP address may not be evaluated correctly.  If this happens, no workstations, or the incorrect workstations have the Options Set applied.


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  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.

Additional Information

Here is an example:
"IP> AND IP<" is set as the criteria in the Options Set.  The ZAM Manager is interpreting 12
as being less than 4 and hence no results returned because the query doesn't make sense when evaluated in this way.  If the criteria is changed to "(IP> AND IP< OR (IP>  AND IP<" then the correct results are generated.
