Environment

Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management

Situation

After updating to ZENworks 11 the primary servers become very slow and unresponsive, lots of server busy errors in logs.  The root cause of this problem is due to many chained bundle assignments for bundles created prior to the 11 update.
 
ERROR (in services-messages.log):
 
[DEBUG] [17.05.11 00:12:16] [] [Assignment Web Service] []
[java.lang.NullPointerException
