Environment


Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Bundles

Situation

Bundles assigned to device or user that use Dynamic Administrative User (DAU) with Network Credentials are unable to launch an executable from a networked volume (such as an NSS volume hosted on OES 2).

Resolution

This is fixed in version 11.2.4 - see KB 7012027 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.4 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7012027

Workaround:
Change the launch executable action: in the "Launch Options" tab, disable "Use the operating system shell to start the process"

Additional Information

Note: "Console" applications may still have issues when the box above disabled.

To launch command-line program such as CMD.exe, configure the bundle to launch a simple VBS script executed using  WSCRIPT.exe with the name of the script specified under "command line parameters".
Below is an example of such a script that executes two different commands as examples.
 
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
objShell.Run("cmd.exe")
objShell.Run("dosomething.bat")
