Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management - ZLM7.3


When deleting a device the command errors out.

The command used to remove the device:
zlman sd The/Context/Of/The/Device

Error: "Fatal Error: The operation could not be performed because the object "GUID-Of-Device" was moved too recently. Try again later."

The object has not been moved recently.


Check and fix the following in eDirectory:

1- Check to see that time is in sync on the eDirectory servers.
2- Check to see that the eDirectory replicas are in sync.
3- Check for stuck obituaries that are not processing.

Once the above items are fixed the device removal process should work.
