If you are currently using the first release of ZENworks 7 Suite with Support Pack 1, be aware that Interim Release 4 includes updates for Desktop Management, Server Management, and Handheld Management only (see Section 2.0, What's New in ZENworks 7 with Support Pack 1 Interim Release 4, above).
Application of the Interim Release 4 patches for the respective product capabilities (ZENworks 7 Desktop Management SP1 IR4, ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Services on Linux SP1 IR4, and ZENworks 7 Server Management SP1 IR4) does not constitute a complete overlay of these products. Running the patch installation programs ugrades the products with the interim release fixes.
