Novell ZENworks Patch Management 11
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Patch Management


The Reset ZENworks Patch Management Settings button in Subscription Service Information configuration options has been used to reset the ZPM configuration.

Before the Patch Management subscription service has been triggered to do its first cycle after reconfiguration, the Select vendors to use in the system setting in Subscription Download is set to Selected.

All patches are getting marked as disabled.


This is working as designed.

Additional Information

Please note that subscription service needs to complete its first cycle before it can show a vendor list on the Subscription Download configuring page. Before this the Selected option is available without any vendor to choose from.

If the Selected options is set without any vendor being marked, all new added patches are getting marked as disabled.
