An account can create bundles but can not publish this bundles as YUM-repositories.
When creating a YUM-repository, the (primary) server option can not be added.


This is fixed in version 11.2.1 - see KB 7010042 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.21 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7010042
