Some people are unhappy that there are patches while others are unhappy that there are bugs. I've hit bugs myself and am taking a very slow approach to deployment. I think that this is the only prudent method of deploying this software as it is cutting edge. It's not just Novell that has these problems... I've had cars that are the first gen and they have serious problems, but later models are rock solid. We're heavy users of VMWare ESX 3 and it's been a big pain on one hand and incredible on the other. MS Vista has bugs even with years of development and tons of money and testing.
I think that any complete redesign of any product is bound to have some growing pains.
But, I am happy that there are patches. I just wish they weren't so big :)
Just to clarify this is NOT SP1 for ZCM, that is due next year and has not changed. There ARE fixes in this download, and it will also be available via the sytem-updater shortly (so that you do not need to re-install).
The update has been release as a 'media' release. When ZCM came out in August it was download only, this new release does contain fixes that have been developed since August but more importantly is the version that you can order on DVD as well as downloading.
I'm told that a TID will be released with the changelog.
