Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Installation - Agent
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1


When attempting to install a system with autoyast and deploy the ZCM agent during the same process, the ZCM agent install fails.

The jre rpm cannot install successfully since the post-install scriptlet tries to run /etc/init.d/jexec start at the very end. Since the installation ramdisk is missing the binfmt_misc kernel driver file under /proc is missing and the install fails.


This is not a supported method for deploying the agent, deploy the agent using other methods. This is noted in the documentation in the Discovery, Depolyment, and Retirement Reference.
