ZENworks 11.4.1 is here!


I'm happy to announce that ZENworks 11.4.1 is now available! At present it is available from Patch Finder, but it will be made available on the System Update servers shortly. This means that if you have automatic system update checking enabled, then for the first time in a long time, you should see it on the System Update tab in ZENworks Control Center within the next 24 hours. If you don't want to wait, or if you can't use System Update auto-checking, then you can get it now from here.

This update provides the following new value:

  • Windows 10 support

  • OS-X 10.11 "El Capitan" support

  • Support for ZENworks License Information Source for better tracking of ZENworks product licenses by ZENworks Asset Management

  • Ability for Micro Focus to gather telemetry data to help us better serve you and the ability for you to opt-in to sending usage data

  • Ability to copy bundle actions and move them between action sets

  • Improved Patch Management performance in ZENworks Control Center

  • New capability to jump to page in data grids

  • Defect fixes identified in the ZENworks 11.4.1 TID

I hope you find this new value compelling and that the investment we've made in quality assurance means that this is the best ZENworks release yet!

There are a couple of important things to note BEFORE applying the 11.4.1 update to your system. Please review the TID associated with the update, here for the details. In summary there is a pre-requisite update that needs to be installed on your Primary Servers immediately before deploying 11.4.1 and an additional patch that needs to be deployed to Satellites you do not plan to update immediately to 11.4.1 to ensure proper functioning of your Join Proxy and Authentication after upgrading Primary Servers to 11.4.1. Unfortunately there was no way for us to address these issues within the 11.4.1 patch itself. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Comment List
  • A question on logistics. I have one primary server but am about to add a second. Server #1 is on 11.4. Should I add the second primary at 11.4 and then upgrade both with the Prereq and then the 11.4.1 upgrade, or can I take the existing server all the way to 11.4.1 and then add the second server and bring it through the steps to 11.4.1 without problems?
