Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2


Personality Migration client is installed.

The device can not connect to IP addresses outside its own network

ipconfig /all shows that an additional default gateway with address got added to the network configuration


Execute the command route delete

Please note that on device or service restart, this additional gateway is likely to come back.


The personality migration client ships with the Apple Bonjour service and its a known issue that under Windows Vista or newer this service might add this default gateway entry on startup.
