The Readmes have been updated to indicate which issues were fixed by version 10.2.2.
This section contains information about issues that might occur in version 10.2.2:
If ZENworks System Update is triggered when ZENworks Adaptive Agent is busy processing ZENworks related tasks, the ZENworks icon might pop up the following incorrect error message when the agent is trying to stop the ZENworks service.
The Novell ZENworks Agent service could not be stopped. Try manually stopping the service and restarting the ZENworks Update.
Workaround: Ignore the message. ZENworks System Update will automatically terminate the service within 10 to 15 minutes and subsequently will resume with the update.
Before applying version 10.2.2 to the ZENworks Server and managed devices that have version 10.2.1 installed, if you uninstall one or more ZENworks Adaptive Agent features and subsequently apply version 10.2.2 only to the ZENworks Server, you cannot reinstall the uninstalled version 10.2.1 ZENworks Adaptive agent feature.
Workaround: Apply TID 7004739 available in the Novell Support Knowledgebase.
This section contains information about issues that might occur with ZENworks Adaptive Agent.
If you have configured a bundle to display its shortcut in the managed devicemenu and you assign this bundle to a Windows 7 device, the bundle shortcut icon is not displayed in the menu. This is because Microsoft* currently does not support the creation of custom folders on a Windows 7 device by using Namespace Extensions.
Workaround: To display the bundle shortcut icons in themenu of a Windows 7 device:
Open the Registry Editor.
Go to HKLM\Software\NetWare\NAL.
If the registry key does not already exist, then you must create it.
Create a DWORD called EnableStartMenuView and set its value to 1.
Terminate and restart the explorer.exe process through the Windows Task Manager.
Log in to the managed device again.
The bundles shortcut icons are displayed in themenu. However, if the icons are not properly displayed, an automatic or manual refresh of the managed device is required.
For more details, see TID 7005032 available in the Novell Support Knowledgebase.
This section contains information about issues that might occur with Asset Inventory.
If you want to inventory the BIOS details for Windows* 7 64-bit devices, you must have SMBIOS 2.1 or later installed on these devices.

This section contains information about issues that might occur when you use Patch Management in ZENworks Configuration Management.
If a patch has not finished caching and deployment for that patch occurs, the progress window displays a ‘Failure occurred’ message. For patches that require reboot after deployment, the machine reboots in spite of the patch not being applied.
Workaround: Ensure that a patch is completely cached on the server and that content for the patch bundle is available before proceeding with patch deployment. In case the patch remediation schedule for the previously non-cached patch has expired, reschedule deployment.
