## ZCM 11.1 combined fix for "ZENworks Adaptive Agent"

Novell posted on download.novell.com/Download?buildid=l31zfe2aWK0~ patch ZCM 11.1 combined fix for "ZENworks Adaptive Agent" on desktop, see TID 7007656, Bundles randomly disappear after ZCM 11.1 update - see TID 7009087 and Bundle verify fails with Reboot/Shutdown action - see TID 7009953.

The bundle created using the xml file in this fix contains wrong command:
The action "Rename old files, copy new files" points partly to a wrong directory:
>cd /d "%ZENWORKS_HOME%\bin\handlers\"< should be >cd /d "%ZENWORKS_HOME%\bin\modules\"<

The description of the patch

is also faulty, the correct version is (value to 0 instead value to 1)

Is Novell not testing the patches? This is not the first time I found error(s) in the patches ...
