Can't find or run ZENworks Management Daemon.

On a SLES 11 x64 satellite server, I get the following error when trying to run "zac" commands:

"ZENworks Management Daemon may not be running or is not fully initialized yet"

I can't find it to install or run.

chkconfig -s novell-zmd on
novell-zmd: unknown service

How do I get it running again?

Has it ever worked? What does

/etc/init.d/novell-zenworks-xplatzmd status

say?

Re: Can't find or run ZENworks Management Daemon.

I just hit this same issue and as it turned out, the Linux device was not able to reach the Primary server listed in the certificates (check your zmd-messages.log file to see where the device is reaching out to and make sure it's pingable and resolvable - I'd made a mistake not changing the hostname before installing ZCM - long story). Once I'd added secondary IP addresses to the Primaries, zac commands started to work. This error is a bit of a misnomer, but this is how I fixed it.
