Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Satellites
Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Satellites

Situation

Performance issues as number of satellite servers increases
 
Cannot set Satellite Replication Schedule independently of Primary Server Replication Schedule
 
Default Content Replication Schedule of 5 minutes is too frequent

Resolution

For 10.3: This is fixed in version 10.3.2 - see KB 7007237 "ZENworks Configuration Management 10.3.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
 
For ZCM 11: 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 https://www.novell.com/support

Additional Information

The default of 5 minutes for Content Replication made sense when ZCM was only being used in small environments, but now it needs to be longer, and more flexibility is required.
