Novell ZENworks ZENworks Virtual Appliance 11 SP3


A Primary Server Virtual Appliance has been configured so that additional eDirectory attributes can be used as bundle system variables.

These variables are no longer resolved after migrating the Appliance from ZCM 11.2.x to 11.3


1. Backup the file /etc/opt/novell/zenworks/datamodel/authsource/edirectory-users-additional.zls.xml
from ZCM 11.2.x appliance.
2. Copy the file to the same directory on the new ZCM 11.3 appliance after migration has been finished.
3. Restart the ZCM services using novell-zenworks-configure -c Start command.


The file /etc/opt/novell/zenworks/datamodel/authsource/edirectory-users-additional.zls.xml containing the additional eDirectory attribute definitions has not been migrated to the new ZCM 11.3 appliance.
