Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Bundles


Bundles are assigned to users
A user logged-in and logged-off after device startup.
The same or a different user is logging-in

New bundle assignments are not flowing down to the device.


A fix for this issue is intended to be included in a future update to the product: however, 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.


The random refresh option is effective on additional user logins so that the refresh triggered on user login is not going to the network. But the refresh going to the network is not getting triggered after the random time to wait.

Additional Information

By design the random refresh option should only be effective during first user login after device startup speeding up user login while Windows is still initializing after device startup.
