Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.3 ZENworks Control Center - ZCC


When using a shutdown/reboot action in a bundle, or a Quick Task to shutdown/reboot a device, if the prompt contains any text in braces (also known as "curly brackets"), such as
We will reboot your PC in {0} seconds
then the specified prompt is not displayed, and the shutdown/reboot message defaults to the generic message.


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
