I am having alot of problems installing ZENworks configuration management 11 SP2 on SLES 11 SP2 and OES 11 SP1.
I created a fresh install of SLES 11 SP2 and OES 11 SP1. I did not add any OES roles and I did not make any changes to the default SLES configuration. Next, I updated the server and ensured that all perquisite RPMs were installed.Then, I made sure that both the ISO, and the folder the ISO was mounted to had read and execute permissions for all users. In addition, I ran the installer as the root user. Also, I made sure to stop the apache2 dameon prior to the install. Unfortunately for me, the install failed with serious errors. I have pasted the text of the error log below.

Since this is a test environment, I am using the embedded sybase database, which seems to be failing to install.

I am using the default version of java that is installed. The output of java -version at the command prompt is:
java version "1.6.0_0"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.6) (suse-5.9.4-x86_64)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.0-b16, mixed mode)

Here is the output of my $PATH variable:
/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin:/opt/novell/eDirectory/bin:/opt/novell/eDirectory/sbin:/opt/novell/migration/sbin:/opt/novell/ncl/bin

One possibility is that ZENworks is having some conflicts with the default Apache and Tomcat installation. I would appreciate it if anyone knows if there are any known issues with ZENworks and the default SLES and OES server configuration. In addition, I do not know if the default welcome page is causing problems, or how to disable it.

Also, I read through the file: Novell Documentation, In particular, the section on installing dependent RPMs on a linux device.

I'm pretty new to SLES, so any assistance would be appreciated.
