Environment

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Content
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Content Replication

Situation

While replicating content, a satellite server creates a CPR file in %WINDIR%\temp. When a ZCM satellite changes source on an active file , it discards the CPR entry in its local db and restart the file download from scratch, leaving an orphaned file behind in the temp folder.

Resolution

A fix for this issue is intended to be included in a future update to the product: however, in the interim, Novell has made a Patch available for testing, as part of a Monthly patch update: it can be obtained at https://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=Rbs5fYlojj0~ as "ZCM 11.2.4 Monthly Update 1 - see TID 7014163". This update should only be applied if the symptoms above are being experienced, and are causing problems.
