If dates are manually entered into the "Message Cleanup" dialog, messages from today are acknowledged/deleted instead

Configuration>Message Cleanup dialog allows dates to be manually entered

but any changes made by manually typing in the date fields is ignored (so by default the cleanup will happen for messages created "today").


This is fixed in version 11.2.1 - see KB 7010042 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

to choose different dates, click the date selector icon to the right of the date, navigate to the desired date and click on it.
