When viewing or assigning migrated bundles there is an out of memory error:

[Bundle] [Bundle.ItemCreationError] [Error creating item to represent bundle:

This is fixed in version 11.1 - see KB 7008746 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

In this situation deleting the bundle and then re-migrating it using the migrate as an MSI option resolved the problem.

Additional Information

The bundle in question was migrated from an application object that had thousands of ini and registry operations and hundreds of fill files.
