ZENworks Configuration Management 2017 Update 2


Scheduled inventory reports sending email with attachment fail to add the attachment when the report name contains characters invalid to the primary server file system.  For example on Windows, "<", ">", "/"

ERROR (from inventory-servlet.log):

[Inventory Servlet] [] [QueryJob exception4: ] [ C:\Program Files (x86)\Novell\ZENworks\share\tomcat\webapps\zenworks\report name / test.xls (The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect)


Workaround:  Don't use characters in the custom report name that are invalid on the primary server file system as filename.
