Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.3


When trying to use RDP to remotely access a Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2012 device, at some point, the session will crash.

The following could be seen in the Application Event Viewer:

Application Name: mstsc.exe
Fault Module Name: ZenNotify.dll_unloaded


This is fixed in version 11.3.1 - see KB 7015288 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.3.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https:// www.novell.com/support/search.do?usemicrosite=true&searchString=7015288


Test if the crash is avoided after adding the following switch to the default.rdp file and restarting the 'Novell ZENworks Agent Service' service:


Does it go straight to the Novell login prompt, instead of first bringing up the rdp login prompt?  If yes, it is expected to be this issue and fix.
