Resolution

This is fixed in version 11.4.2 - see KB 7017469 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.4.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7017469


Additional Information

This is not an error in the database, but a problem with ZENworks Diagnostic Center (ZDC) itself.  Apparently those are created as integer datatype which gets translated in Oracle to a NUMBER (38) format. So the expected column size should be 38.
