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

Workaround:1. Run the following query against your database: " Select count(*) from zqueue where type like '%ncc.reregistration.queue.id%' and status = 'N';
2. If a large number of rows are returned this can be confirmation.
3. Take a full backup the database.
4. Run the following query against your database: " Delete * from zqueue where type like '%ncc.reregistration.queue.id%' and status = 'N';
5. If you have an expired System Entitlement code in ZCC, please update it with a current one in ZCC->Configuration->Management Zone Settings->Infrastructure Management->System Update Settings.
