Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.1


The error comes from a change in /etc/profile.d/ and /etc/profile.d/novell-zenworks.csh.
A line was added to the file that calls the manpath executable: set TEMP_MAN_PATH=`manpath`  if this is changed to : set TEMP_MAN_PATH=`manpath -q` the error does not show up.

Running an "rpm -q --whatprovides /etc/profile.d/" does not show that this file belongs to an rpm.


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
