Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2


When doing an inventory scan of a device, it reports a login name that is incorrect and not the currently logged in user.  On the device in %ZENWORKS_HOME%\work\inventory\temp there is a loginname.dat file.  In that file it contains a username that may be from a previously logged in user, but not the currently logged in user.  The inventory scan is collecting the login name of from the loginname.dat file.


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
