Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Support Pack 1 - ZCM 11 SP1 Migration


Migrating ZDM application that does any of the following:
  • Creates a directory
  • Deletes a directory
  • Deletes a file
File or directory path includes a macro, such as %USERPROFILE%

Migrated bundle does not have the macro, but has the value of the environment variable from the user performing the migration (e.g, %USERPROFILE% is replaced with something like "C:\users\admin")


This is fixed in version 11.2 - see KB 7010044 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Additional Information

Other actions, such as copying a file, do not have the macro substituted: it is carried across intact.
