Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Imaging


When attempting to apply an assigned imaging bundle to a "Dummy" device, the following error may occur:

Error: There was an error setting the selected devices to apply their effective imaging bundles.
See the ZENworks Control Center log file (zcc.log) for the full stack trace.

A "Dummy" device is one that was created manually in ZCC prior to reconciliation with a registered device.


This is fixed in version 11.2.1 - see KB 7010042 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Workaround: if it is not possible to upgrade to 11.2.1 at this time, in the interim, Novell has made a Patch available for testing, as part of a Monthly patch update: it can be obtained at as "ZCM 11.2 Monthly Update 2 - see TID 7006918". This update should only be applied if the symptoms above are being experienced, and are causing problems.

Please report any problems encountered when using this Patch, by using the feedback link on this TID.

1. In ZCC > Devices click on a "Dummy" device to open the summary for that device.
2. Under Imaging Work click Advanced.
3. Using the drop-down menu for Schedule Work, select Apply Assigned Imaging Bundle.
