Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.1


Bundle Settings are imported to 'Published' version rather than 'Sandbox' version


This is fixed in version 11.2 - see KB 7010044 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Additional Information

Steps to duplicate:
1. Create a Windows bundle named "Bundle-1" and make the following changes to this new bundle:

Changes on the Summary Page:

ZENworks Explorer Folder Path: /Novell/Test Bundles

Changes on the Settings > System Variable page:

Add a system variable: Variable-A=first value
Add a system variable: Variable-B=Second value

2. Publish the sandbox to a new version.

3. Export the bundles settings via zman:   zman bsetf -s "/bundles/Bundle-1" C:\Bundle-1-Settings.xml

4. Create a new, empty windows bundle. Do not create a sandbox, or make sure that the bundle is published before executing.

5. Import the previous exported settings to the new bundle named "Bundle-2": 
zman bss D:\Bundle-1-Settings.xml /Bundles/Bundle-2

6. Verify changes to Bundle-2:

  - Bundle has now a sandbox version as expected
  - ZENworks Explorer Folder Path was changed in the sandbox version as expected
  - System Variables were not changed in the sandbox version
  - Change the Displayed Version from Sandbox to (0) Published
  - System Variable Settings were written to the Published version rather than to the sandbox version

Bundle Settings will be imported to the published version
