Browser indicates javascript error, indicating that there is an error in the code for that URL. And, drilling into this error, a similar message to the following appears:

Determine if the file is inconsistent (incorrect checksum, or improper file ownership/rights) by executing a ZENworks Diagnostic Center (ZDC), and reviewing its report. It will list the expected file checksum (and file ownership on a Linux server).

If the njwc.js shows an incorrect checksum:
  Windows: %ZENWORKS_HOME%\share\tomcat\webapps\zenworks\js\njwc\njwc.js
  Linux:        /opt/novell/zenworks/share/tomcat/webapps/zenworks/js/njwc/njwc.js
  1. Back up the original inconsistent njwc.js file to a directory outside of the ZCM file structure for safe keeping.
  2. Replace the inconsistent njwc.js file with a known good file from a known good server running the same ZCM version and patch level.
  3. If on a Linux primary, change the file permissions as the replaced file will be owned by the user used during file copy.
    chown zenworks:zenworks /opt/novell/zenworks/share/tomcat/webapps/zenworks/js/njwc/njwc.js
    chmod 755 /opt/novell/zenworks/share/tomcat/webapps/zenworks/js/njwc/njwc.js
    *** Note - all files in this directory should have the above ownership and rights. ***
