ZENworks Configuration Management 2017 Update 4


OpenJDK changes cause ZCC Helper failure on 2017 Update 4 ZENworks managed devices (except for Remote Management operations).  When an operation such as file upload in ZCC is performed from a ZENworks device, zcc-helper fails to launch the UI with following error:
