Hello:
I have a Zen7 SP1 DM Deployment with dedicated Zen Servers.
1 Root Server with Database and workstations Connected at one site.
2 leaf servers w/o dB and workstations connected at WAN sites

WAN sites are 1) 100Mb FDX and 2) a Full T1 to the other leaf server
(50 users)

The STR and ZIP files get created at the Leaf Servers.
The Inventory Service Objects re the leaf servers show a last storage
time in root server of July 2006.
There is a storer error 335:Socket Input-Output error occurred while
getting the zeninvRollupTime.

The usual stuff (DOES NOT WORK) re using ip address instead of DNS Name
in the Inventory Service Object re:
--*-335: Socket Input-Output error occurred while getting the
zeninvRollupTime

Source: ZENworks for Desktops; Workstation Inventory; Sender

Severity: Critical

Explanation: An internal error occurred while getting the
zeninvRollupTime. The Sender retries connecting to the Receiver for
approximately 23 hours before it discontinues trying.

Possible Cause: The next-level Inventory server is not up and running.

Action: Ensure that the next-level Inventory serve is up and running.

Possible Cause: The next-level Inventory server is not reachable.

Action: Ensure that the next-level Inventory server is reachable.

Possible Cause: The ZEN Web Server is not running on the next-level
Inventory server.

Action: Ensure that the ZEN Web Server and the Inventory services are
running on the next-level Inventory server.

Possible Cause: This problem might occur on a NetWare Inventory server
with Native File Access Pack installed. This NetWare server has one or
more volumes exposed as CIFS shares and does not have a DNS name
configured.

If the NetWare server does not have a DNS name configured, the CIFS
service is given a NetBIOS name, and the Roll-up policy assigns the
NetBIOS name as the host name.

This error occurrs if the Sender on the NetWare server fails to resolve
the NetBIOS name to an IP address.

Action: Choose an IP address instead of the NetBIOS name in the
Roll-up policy. For more information, see "Configuring the Roll-Up
Policy" in "Setting Up Workstation Inventory "in the ZENworks for
Desktops 4.0.1 Administration Guide.
etc etc makes no difference.
DNS is working in our env. I can ping from one server to the next
using IP addresses and DNS names.-*--

Anyone have any ideas about this
