Re: ZESService causing Windows 7 to reboot

Warren, same exact problem here, and mine was an upgrade. While I don't have an answer for you, I at least feel better knowing that someone with a fresh install has the same issue. The part that bother me is I didn't ask for ZESM, I didn't want ZESM, yet here I have this thing crashing and rebooting my end user PC's. Ugh.

Re: ZESService causing Windows 7 to reboot

Understand, but the ZESM services are used for location and some other
non-ZESM functions.

A patch exists for ZESM that may help.

Re: ZESService causing Windows 7 to reboot

Couple things that might help.
1) I'm running ZPM only, and the agent seems to behave ok. The ZES service (along with 3 Novell services) are installed, but the package has been low-profile and non-disruptive.
Before, I had all the pieces of the agent installed, and it nearly killed me.

2) The ZES service, by default is configured to reboot your machine if it crashes. Services/ZESService/Recovery Tab shows 'reboot the computer' for first failure, second failure, and subsequent failures. Sub-optimal choice. I've changed mine manually on the client to 'restart the service' for the first two and 'take no action' for subsequent failures. Not sure if we can set up the server to deploy the agent with that configuration.

Re: ZESService causing Windows 7 to reboot

That would be a simple registry setting you could push.
I'm not sure of the impact or if the reboot would still happen.
