11.4.3 -> ZCM 2017.3 failed on OES satellite

Just in case somebody stumbles accross this too:

System Update from 11.4.3 to 2017.3 on OES 2018 failed. It turned out that rpm tried to call systemctl disable but failed; this was because of an old link - deleting this solved the problem:

from the rpm log:

+ /usr/bin/systemctl disable novell-zislnx.service
