Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Reporting Server


When installing ZRS 10.3 on a ZENworks primary that is already upgraded to 10.3.3, ZRSinstall for ZENworks Reporting Server installation may fail with the following error in the install log (open debug messages in the log):
An error occurred while configuring the Reporting Server
com.novell.zenworks.datamodel.exceptions.ObjectNotFoundException: Role ReportCMSServer is not valid, server type: Primary



This is fixed in version 10.3.4 - see KB 7008244 "ZENworks Configuration Management 10.3.4 - 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 10.3.4 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=k9NUKjEaMBo~ as "ZCM 10.3.3 ZRS install may fail adding reporting role - see TID 7008571".
