ZISD data settings such as computer name are not restored when a Dell Optiplex 755/760 single core AMD computer is re-imaged.


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 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.

Workaround: Change the configuration of the Primary HDD in BIOS to SATA from AHCI.
