This is my first attempt to work with ZCM in awhile. I am attempting to
take it from 10.1 to 10.1.3. It always fails. I checked the logging
information from

debug logging is all here

and think I set it up correctly, but I never get a system-update.log, which
was supposedly set up by default, right?

The only logged information I could find for the time in question was this:

28 Apr 2009 17:09:11 Unable to parse schedule string: thrown=

Does this give any clues to what is wrong?

ZCM is installed in a test environment on VMware on an old GX280.
