Corrective Steps:
  1. Replace C:\Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\bin\LzmaLib.dll from a workstation running the same adaptive agent version.
  2. Restart the Novell ZENworks Agent Service on the workstation
Policies and bundles should now be visible on the managed device.

Additional Information

This is caused by the anti-virus on the workstation removing LzmaLib.dll from %ZENWORKS_HOME%\bin
