"zman baa" allows circular dependencies to be created

Environment

Zman
Bundles
Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Bundles
Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Zman

Situation

It is possible, using the command "zman baa " ("zman bundle-add-actions ") to add an "Install Bundle " action for a bundle to the same bundle (e.g., add "Install Bundle xyz " to bundle xyz ). This creates a circular dependency, and deploying such a bundle will result in a stack overflow.
 
If using ZCC to add actions, this circular dependency is prevented.

Resolution

A fix for this issue is included in ZENworks 11, see KB 7006995 "ZENworks 11 - information and updates" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
