Resolution

Stop the managed agent service.

  1. SLES 11: /etc/init.d/ novell-zenworks-xplatzmd start --osgiclean
  2. SLES 12: Use systemctl.  For more information about using systemctl see https://www.novell.com/communities/coolsolutions/managing-zenworks-services-using-systemctl/
    example:  backup and modify /usr/lib/systemd/system/novell-zenworks-xplatzmd.service to add --osgiclean, run systemctl daemon-reload and then start the agent.
  3. OSx:  Modify xplat_startup.ini at /var/opt/novell/zenworks to set osgiclean=yes and restart agent launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.novell.zenworks.agent.plist
