Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management


Replace user source container with common parent does not work.
For example, if a user source had been configured as follows:
/LINUX-86-TREE/novell/ou1/ou11 ou11
/LINUX-86-TREE/novell/ou1/ou12 ou12
/LINUX-86-TREE/novell/ou2 ou2
/LINUX-86-TREE/novell/ou3 ou3
/LINUX-86-TREE/novell/ou4 ou4
/LINUX-86-TREE/novell/ou5 ou5
/LINUX-86-TREE/novell/ou6 ou6
Attempting to replace ou11 and ou12 with ou1 above will fail.
This dialog can replace one or more user contexts with a single context that is higher in the user source hierarchy.

One or more child containers have already been added.   Delete the child container to add the parent.
