Hi everyone

Zenworks 6.5 with Update2 patches and Zen agent , workstations XP SP1
and W2K SP4 with U2 Agent installed.

Zen Server running on 2003
Not using client32 on workstations

I have come across some strange behaviour with the caching of

I was getting a large number of 1612 and or 1603 error messages ,
after much googling and searching , I found that if I was to cache
some MSI application to the local PC , and then do a force run from
there , that they are causing corruption of the local file system.

This is reported in the MSI debug file , stating something along the
lines that the install source is corrupt , Run a disk check and sure
enough the are errrors on the file system.

If I install the app from the network location , it installs fine , If
I install it with Zen and do not cache it, it installs fine.

It would only happen if cached to the local workstation , it did'nt
happen for all apps , but it was often enough , to currently abandon
caching applications.
I'm still in the POC stage of my project ,but have a demo to the
powers that be coming up and would like to have an answer to this if

Has anyone else see anything like this
