I everyone.

Yesterday i assigned 72 bundles to a Linux Sles9 Server.
Only 33 Bundles were installed.
On the inventory-tab the number of installed bundles is 0.
This makes sense, because the last refresh was 25.01.2010.

Here is part of zmd-messages.log:

After a reboot the next 7 bundles were installed before the installation stopped again at the preprepare-step of a bundle:

After a few installations it stopped again.

I dont think that it is the right way to repeat systemboots until all bundles are installed ;-).
