Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Inventory


When looking in ZCC, not all XEN guests are reported, due to Inventory for some XEN guests fails.
In the zmd-messages log for the XEN guest, the following error message can be seen:
[InventoryHandler] [java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1] [] []


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
