Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2


Laptop users would login to a network location which would cache the credentials. After the machine was turned off and powered back on when disconnected from work network login times would increase.


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


Closest Server Rules were not updated when location is changed.

Additional Information

The following changes have been done:
  1. On Location change, ZCM will now update the CSR rules first then proceed for refresh
  2. Avoid any un-necessary device registration when there are no CSR's defined
  3. Avoid downloading OSTargets xml file when there are no CSR's defined
  4. Avoid creating location URI from initial-web-service file if the device is already registered once and there are no CSR's defined.
