ZCM 11.0 - Cumulative Agent Patch 1 - Known issues

Hey,

For those of you deploying this, please reply to this thread with issues you encounter and a few lines about your setup (eDir/AD usersource, Client OS and Server OS).

I ask this because I've tested the file prior to the release (and the earlier ZESM fixes), I've had negative results that impact the implementation of the fix.

The error I am getting after deploying this is a massive increase in the time the agent service takes to start up, up to 5 minutes extra on a relatively new computer (Dell Latitude E5410), making such things as login with new userprofile and the NWC increase dramatically.... When the service is started, it is however fixed as they say, regarding the Location Awareness engine that was my initial problem(The TID also lacks VMXNET 3 network controller from the affected)...

This is not an attack on Novell or anything, its just that I want more information from others, if its my setup or if its common, other issues etc. (I really want Novell to be more open though, so its easier to work with your products, and I hope they fix their RSS feeds!)


Best Regards,

I've also successfully deployed the bundle directly from ZCM.

I think the main issue was the time to test such a bundle vs the desire
to get the fix out.

Another issue with the patche: windows xp machine, with zcm agent 10.1.3. I have pushed the agent 11 upgrade fix, and after reboot, can't autologin to ZCM zone. I desinstall the zen client, a error occurs. I reboot, then try to reinstall from scratch the zen11 agent but no luck, system tell me that agent is already there......

It was a machine in production, we still have zen7, so I reinstall the zen 7 agent to the client to rapidly correct the issue. Great, zen7 is more robust than zen10/11

I'm afraid of Zen10/11 product !!! It seems that there is no stability !! What if we have 5000 clients to upgrade ?

the update says that ZCM 11 is a pre-requisite, it's an update of the
agent, not a way to install the ZCM 11 agent on an earlier base...

Actually it's mostly problems with the locations that is my concerns. Got some workstations that have the "*UNKNOWN*" specified, wich gives me some other problems... Is there an individual fix for that maby?

That should be fixed with the update to ZESM which is included in CAP1. If you have updated it correctly, it should be fixed if your Location rules are correct 😉

Yep, that would be nice. And this fix is only included in the CAP1, right? 🙂

You can take out the setup.exe and apply only that fix by stopping the services and killing the Zen processes(dont stop the ZES*), however it is not recommended because of the other fixes in the other modules that should also be applied, like fixes for satellite authentication etc 😉

There are also some fixes related to policies and hibernation/sleep, that's I highly recommend to apply the whole fix 😉

Sounds like the right way to do that, yes.

Thanks

Note: Some of the other MSIs also work with the ZESM patch to fix
location issues. The ZESM patch itself may help, but if it does not you
may need the other fixes.
