Environment

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 10.3
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.1
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2
Novell ZENworks Patch Management
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Imaging

Situation

The Discover Applicable Update content and other Patch Management content was not be replicated to other Primary ZCM servers nor satellites on a consistent basis.  It was verified that the Discover Applicable Update bundle content was in fact on the ZCM/ZPM server's content directory, but not on the other primary server / satellite server.

The issue was seen, once or twice in a week randomly since the restart of the ZENworks loader service.

In another situation with many devices booting into PXE, PXE boot started failing every morning

Resolution

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 https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7010757

Cause

The cause is excessive memory consumption by zenloader process while processing inventory scan reports.
