ZENworks Configuration Management 2017 Content


Satellite Servers not receiving content items.

Content items are marked as Pending while no longer required.

Content items are not getting cleaned-up.


This is fixed in version ZENworks Configuration Management 2017 Update 1 - see KB 7020155 "ZENworks Configuration Management 2017 Update 1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Workaround:  For an official Field Test file on ZENworks Configuration Management 2017 contact Micro Focus Customer Care ZENworks Technical Support.


Starting with ZENworks 2017 content sync is solely based on the zContentSyncState sql database table and new content items are marked as Pending on import for the different Primary & Satellite servers. After this, while related bundles or policies are removed, the content items can stay behind even with Pending status while no longer required.
