ZENworks Agent Service stops after deploying 10.3.3 agent.
Yesterday i patched our three ZCM-servers (Sles 11) with 10.3.3. I then
deployed the 10.3.3 agent to some computers in the IT-department. ZCC
shows that the deployment were successful. The problem is that you can
not log on to the ZONE from many of these computers. The Novell ZENworks
Agent Service stops. I get the following in the Application Windows Log
on a Windows 7 64-bit client:
Faulting application name: ZenworksWindowsService.exe, version:
10.3.3.3582, time stamp: 0x4d654308

I am trying to install agents through the agent management center. I
click on install agents, I type the username, password, and domain name.
I go to the Microsoft Windows Network to locate the domain name and
select the specific machine I want to install it on. When I select
install I get an error the "Number of nodes to install is greater than
the available licenses." We are using the evaluation version where 100
computer are allowed to install agents and we only 40. Could somebody
help please. Thank you
It appears that in the past few day...Zenworks agent install
Is there a way to install the zenworks agent onto multiple desktops that
dont have it already installed? and set all the options and settings?
cheers in advance
Sure, do you want to do it via login script or NAL?
If these TIDs don't help or you have other questions, please ask.

I'd like to upgrade a WA Agent on a system that houses a POA/MTA/GWIA, preferably
without having to shut down the other agents. Any way to do that?

I had a few 10.2.1 agents start installing and failed(going from 10.2
agent). I then try again by doing a 'redeploy update to device(s)' but the
status on these devices never changes from 'Update Assigned' after a
refresh. 10.2 agent is still on the failed machines but the 10.2.1 update
never tries to install again. Any ideas to force the update to try again?
This system-update.log is from one of our WIn2003x64 servers just a managed
device not a ZCM server.

Here is our problem. It is a bit unique, but still a problem.
We had a ZCM Zen server about a year ago. We had several labsl tied to
It worked pretty good. It was a 10.01 server, when we wanted to
upgrade to 10.3, it was like a nightmare on elm street!!
We had an excellent Novell engineer assist us on cleaning up our Zen
environment. We ended up building a new server up, which of course
orphaned a lot of workstations. Here is where we are getting into
New Zen ZCM server in place:
Many workstations with old Zen agents on a lower level, orphaned fro...Old 10.0.3 agent rolls out after I install a new 10.2 machine
If I install 10.2 to a new machine I will get bundles from 10.0.3 rolling
out to the machine after the reboot. Searching in the bundles
cache(C:\Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\cache\zmd\ZenCache\) on the server I
see all the MSIs are there for the 10.0.3 install. I don't have any bundles
that do this install in ZCC. I am guessing this is happening at some deeper
system level. How to I clear these out if they are not in my bundle list?
If you look at your SystemUpdate Tab, Do you still see 10.0.3 Listed? If
so, I wou...Zenworks 4 agent Install
Hello I've been reading through the upgrade guide fot upgrading from
to Zen 4, one fo the steps before installing Zenworks 4 is to install
Agent on the Client Machines. I've installed this on a test machine
when I try and log in i get a second login box. I read that in theory
agent should look to see if there are any zen 4 policies and if not it
should use the Zen 3 policy but it looks as if it is not doing so.
Anyone got any ideas.
If this is the wrong forum I apologize is advance
the zen4 and zen3 policies are th...Installing the Patch Management Agent
I need to force an install of the Agent to all of my computers. They
already have an older Agent on them. The problem is that some people have
disabled the DAgent because it was slowing their computer down so much
they could not work. This makes it hard for me to force the new agent down
using PatchLink. I was wondering if there is switches on the .msi that
will make it force a install over the old Agent and add the IP of the
server along with the serial number? That way I could use ZFD 7 to
distribute the new Agent.
If there is a better way please don't hesitate to let me...cannot install ZCM agent if Zen Asset Manager agent there
I am currently running the ZDM 6.5 agent on my XP workstations and I
also purchased the Novell Zen Asset Manager product, which has it's own
agent on the workstations. Now the ZCM agent also does the
functionality of the ZAM client. When I try to install THE ZCM agent it
attemps to remove the old ZDM agent. This fails. The only way to
recover from this is to reghost the workstation. If you manually first
remove the ZAM then you can manually remove the ZFD client, then you can
install ZCM. It appears that if you are using the ZAM you cannot instal
ZCM because it will not remo...Installing server and agent patches
I will be upgrading our Patchlink server to the new version, along with
the agents on the workstation. The informatin I have is that we need to
install the server first because the newer agent won't communicate with
older versions of Pathlink server. Does the older agents communicate with
the newer version of the Patchlink server so that I can deploy the new
agents to the workstations, or do I need to deploy the agents seperately
through Zenworks or other install? Thanks.

We are about ready to rollout Zenworks 4.01 to all users. Of course the
management agent has to be installed on all workstations. I know we can do
it from the login script but does anybody have the switches for it so that
it will be transparent to the users? Is there a TID on how to do this?
If you have already Zen 3.2 you can create a msi application to
distribute the zfdagent.msi to all you workstation .
