System Update of agent to existing agents is not completely silent (does not suppress balloon status messages)

Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management
Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management
Novell ZENworks 11 Configuration Management Support Pack 1 - ZCM 11 SP1

Situation

System Update of agent to existing agents is not completely silent.
ZENworks Control Center (ZCC) > Configuration > System Update > System Update deployment options do not provide the option to suppress balloon status messages.

Resolution

 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

To make an upgrade "silent", go to Configuration > Device Management > System Update Agent > Show System Update Progress and set it to "Off". This setting can be made at Zone, Folder or Device Level

With this setting in place, no balloon tips are shown: an icon does appear, however on Windows 7 and above this will automatically be hidden by Windows by default after a few seconds, and it is possible to substitute an icon of choice as well.
