Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.4 Bundles


A Windows Bundle with install actions gets successfully installed.
The Bundle install action set Install Frequency option is configured to Install once per device.

After another ZENworks agent refresh gets triggered and the Windows Bundle loses installed state and can get installed again.

The Install once per device option should ensure that a give Bundle version can only install one time per device.

Additional Information

This issue can be replicated with a Windows Bundle having the following install actions:
1. run script action like start notepad.exe
2. shutdown/reboot action
3. run script action like start calc.exe

The Bundle gets launch and triggers a device reboot. After this remaining actions are completed and the Bundle related local applstate file moves to installed state. Then another ZENworks agent refresh gets manually triggered rather quickly after successful Bundle install and the local applstate file moves back to not installed state.
