Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management


The "Novell-ZENworks-Configure -c ExtendSchemaForSmartCard" command generates a "Size Limit Exceeded" error while populating the zcmSharedSecret attribute for users.


This is fixed in version 11.2 - see KB 7010044 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

As a workaround, specify a series of subcontainers using the "+" option instead of specifying a single high level container with many users.
