Unable to assign SLE10 SP2 SDK Catalogs/Bundles for Online or Pool.

During a client rug refresh, the ZLM server will log entity errors and return server exceptions to the client (500). Fortunately, the info is provided in the tomcat logs. The 'offending' XML text is located in a number of bundle definition files located in the expansive repo directory:

Code:
/var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/bundles

The errors point to this recurring tag:

Code:
<dep name="/usr/share/lirc/remotes/l&s_electronic"/>

  File: sles-10-x86_64-bundle.xml

which if modified, suppresses the errors:

Code:
<dep name="/usr/share/lirc/remotes/l&amp;s_electronic"/>

Here's a name pattern for corresponding RPM:

Code:
lirc-0.8.0-17.#.[platform].rpm
