Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Imaging


Using "zisview -s" in the ZENworks imaging environment on machine that uses UEFI (not BIOS), some of the fields for SMBIOS Information, such as SMBIOS_MANUFACTURER, SMBIOS_PRODUCT, etc., are blank


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.

Please report any problems encountered when using this Patch, by using the feedback link on this TID.


The library used to read the SMBIOS information did not return the correct results when the the machine has UEFI instead of BIOS.
