December 19 2013 - ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.4 Monthly Update 1

ZCM 11.2.4 Monthly Update 1 is a collection of patches for ZCM 11.2.4, which is intended to be delivered as an easy-to-deploy, well-tested and focused set. Monthly Updates are designed to allow the deployment of important patches in-between product updates.

Monthly Updates should not be installed unless there is a need to remedy one or more of the issues shown in the list of fixes.

A Monthly Update is provided as a zip file, which can be imported into an existing zone, and deployed to devices as required. It is not available via the Novell Customer Center, nor is it shown if  "Check for Updates" is performed (ZCC > Configuration > System Updates > Action > Check for Updates) because this is a set of patches, not a product update.
