ZAM 11 Using Autofill to extract registry key values not working

Environment

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2

Situation

Using a CDF defined to ask for an email address and then autofill from two registry dwords. The autofill parameters are:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\<company>\Title
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\<company>\Junk

The "Title" string goes to a user ADF, the "Junk" string to a workstation ADF. Set the CDF schedule to recurring on device refresh, and then refreshed the agent. The CDF popped as expected, so the scheduling works.

The value line is not correctly formed XML, and no data is displayed.

Resolution

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

As a workaround, If CDF is configured with HKLM it scanned and autofilled data correctly.
