Environment

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2

Situation

Devices that have been updated to ZCM 11.2 MU2 are shown in ZCC as Pending against ZCM 11.2 MU1. This only occurs if ZCM 11.2 MU1 is imported into the zone using 'zman sui ZENworks11SP2MonthlyUpdate1.zip -b' after ZCM 11.2 MU2 has already been applied.

Resolution

Workaround: Don't import ZCM 11.2 MU1 after importing ZCM 11.2 MU2: it's not needed, as ZCM 11.2 MU2 contains all the fixes from ZCM 11.2 MU1 as well.

Reported to engineering for future Monthly Update releases.
