Novell Filr 1.2
Novell ZENworks Mobile Management 3.1
Google Android 5


Since Android 5.0 it isn't possible to install both the Novell ZENworks and Novell Filr app on one device.

After installing the Novell ZENworks Mobile Management agent for Android or the Novell Filr app for Android or vice versa on a device running Google Android 5.0 or up, the secondly installed app fails to install with an error -505.

If the ZENworks app is installed first and then try to install the Filr App the Error-Code "-505" is shown.
The same is observed when installing the apps in reverse order, so first the Filr app and then try to install the ZENworks App.

On a Android 4+ or earlier device it is possible to install both apps via the Play Store.
