Current Version: ZENworks for Desktops 3.2

Don't miss this little patch. It fixes a problem where Automatic Workstation Removal would stop working after a certain time period, and you had to keep restarting the java process to get it to work. (Bummer.)

Just replace the autowsmanagement.jar file with the one in this patch and restart the service and things should work just fine.

The fix seems to cover the Import process as well as Removal (well it worked for me). You mention that the updated autowsmanagement.jar fixes the auto ws removal process stopping in ZfD 3 (specifically 3; no mention of 3.2).

Actually we were receiving the exact same issue with ZfD 3.2, but with auto ws import, not removal. The import process was consistently stopping with a Compiled Code error after a day or two. The removal process was not enabled (commented in zfdstart.ncf). Applying this updated file fixed the problem and didn't seem to break anything either!

Hope this is a useful first Cool Solutions post from me. I find this is a very useful site.
