When data with more than 5 characters is entered into an Administrator Defined Field (ADF) the error is returned that the field does not allow more than 5 characters.  However, the ADF was configured as Character type allowing up to 20 characters.


This is fixed in version 11.2.1 - see KB 7010042 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at
