Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2


20 December 12 - ZENworks Imaging Driver Update for December 2012 (no new update for January or February)
This can be downloaded from https://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=Y6GiUt2iVoY~

8 November 2012 - ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.2

ZCM 11.2.2 can be downloaded from https://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=JfnNlV4owec~
Data regarding GUID, version numbers etc., can be found in the file 11.2.2_Version_Data.pdf available at the above location. Note that this update does not appear when "Check for Updates" is done in ZCC, for the same reasons as shown in TID 7010390 Agent service is not running after applying the ZENworks 11.2.1 update - the same problem could occur if 11.2.2 is made available via that mechanism, and until a fix can be made to the System Update code, large updates will only be made via zip files.

Information regarding the prerequisites for upgrading to this version is contained in the readme for ZCM 11.2.2 at https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks11/readme_zenworks1122/data/readme_zenworks1122.html - note Planning to Deploy Version 11.2.2 shows that devices with agents with versions < 11.2 will require 2 reboots to reach 11.2.2
See TID 7010466 ZCM 10.3.x device fails to upgrade to ZCM 11.2.x for issues that can arise if the agent pre-requisites are not met.

ZCM 11.2.2 contains the same PRU files as the October 2012 PRU
