Environment

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.4

Situation

The ZEUS System Update Agent contained in the ZCM 11.4.0 and newer ZCM Agents will pull system update content from a Primary Server instead of a Satellite Server, even if the satellite server is listed first.

Resolution

There are two workarounds:
 
#1 - Ensure Primary Servers are not included as fallback "Content Servers" for any WAN locations.
#2 - Enable the Legacy System Update Agent by creating the following registry key:  HKLM\Software\Novell\ZCM:EnableTraditionalUpdate (Reg_SZ):True
 
Note: This issue is fixed in ZCM 11.4.3.  However, the work-arounds will still be required to deploy the 11.4.3 update to agents since the fix will be contained in agent code.
