Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 3 - 10.3 Bundles

Situation

Bundle with Shutdown/Reboot Action, with "Display a warning message before doing Reboot/Shutdown " selected
 
Prompt is displayed to user, who clicks on the "Yes " option, to reboot
 
Device waits for the specified time before rebooting

Resolution

This is fixed in version 10.3.1 - see KB 7006265 "ZENworks Configuration Management 10.3.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
 
With this fix, as soon as the "Yes " option is selected, a further message is displayed, to indicate that the reboot will happen immediately, and a confirmation of this second message is required before the reboot happens. This is to ensure that end-users are aware of the consequence of clicking on "Yes "
