After upgrading from Netware to Linux ZSM applications no longer gather correctly.  When looking at the log the wrong slash \ will appear in the log.   


Fixed in ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 4 Hot Patch 5, see KB 3484245 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
