Do you have machines in your Novell Customer Care Center that come up as unknown or just do not look right. Here is a quick way to fix them. REMINDER *** This is just a slimmed down version of excellent pre-written Novell docs. ***
- Remove broken Systems from Novell Customer Care Center (NCC)
---Highlight the machine in the NCC and click the minus sign
- Check for ZMD Services Running:
---- ps -eaf | grep zmd
Now stop ZMD
find the pid and kill it with a -9 - it usually hangs for me....(stuck asleep)
kill -9 pid# found above
Now cleanup the registration in question
Now Restart ZMD Services
suse_register -d 3 -a email=youremailaddress -a regcode-sles=yourslescode -a regcode- oes=youroescode -L register.txt
Now Update the device and it will change from UNKNOWN to a good system in the NCC
I hope this helps and AGAIN.....Novell has documented this well. This is just a bit quicker and gets to the point a little quicker.
