Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2


Role is created in ZCC that has specific rights to modify devices, reports, or other such ZCC actions.  If an Active Directory user is a member of that role, the rights given to the role do not transfer to the user.


This is fixed in version 11.2.2 - see KB 7010757 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Workaround: if it is not possible to upgrade to ZCM 11.2.2 at this time, in the interim, Novell has made a Patch  available for testing, as part of a Monthly patch update: it can be obtained at as "ZCM 11.2.1 Monthly Update 2 - see TID 7010729". This update should only be applied if the symptoms above are being experienced, and are causing problems.
