Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management
In some environments, after reboot of a managed agent, the zicon agent status shows correct "Configuration Location:" but the "Servers" list is empty or incorrect (default server rule list). Running zac ref populates the server list correctly.
This can cause slow login after reboot as improper servers are contacted.
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
Workaround: if it is not possible to upgrade to 11.1 at this time, in the interim, Novell has made a Patch
available for testing, in the form of a Field Test File (FTF): it can be obtained at https://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=1PbLsgtLV0E~ as "ZCM 11.0 - Cumulative Agent Patch 2a". This Patch should only be applied if the symptoms above are being experienced, and are causing problems.

Some Patches have specific requirements for deployment, it is very important to follow any instructions in the readme at the download site.
