The following sections describe the new features and enhancements in Novell ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with Interim Release 4 (IR4):
ZENworks 7.3 Linux Management with IR4 lets you manage the following devices:
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 SP3 on 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x86_64) architectures
RHEL 6 Server on the zSeries (s390x) architecture
For more information, see Section 2.3, Managed Device Requirements.
You can now allow or prevent the package bundle installation after the scheduled time is passed on the managed device by configuring the ZMD preference allow-pastdue. If the allow-pastdue preference value is set to, then ZMD detects any past due schedule actions for the device on refresh, and sends a trigger to process the immediate installation of the pending bundles. However, if the allow-pastdue preference value is set to , then on device refresh, ZMD skips the installation of the assigned bundle for any past due scheduled task.
