Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.4


Frequent error [AuthSatellite.ErrorMissingConfig] [The authentication server configuration data are missing. ] is seen in the ZCC (ZENworks Control Center) message logs.
Because the error is seen in ZCC, the debug zmd-messages.log is checked and the error is seen there too.


This is fixed in version 11.4.1 - see KB 7016895 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.4.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at
