Bundle is unable to launch executable from network resource

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Bundles


Bundles assigned to device or user that use Dynamic Administrative User (DAU) with Network Credentials are unable to launch an executable from a networked volume (such as an NSS volume hosted on OES 2).


This is fixed in version 11.2.4 - see TID 7012027 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.4 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Change the launch executable action: in the "Launch Options" tab, disable "Use the operating system shell to start the process"

Additional Information

Note: "Console" applications may still have issues when the box above disabled.

To launch command-line program such as CMD.exe, configure the bundle to launch a simple VBS script executed using  WSCRIPT.exe with the name of the script specified under "command line parameters".
Below is an example of such a script that executes two different commands as examples.
Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
See http:///  for more details on the "Use the Operating System Shell" Checkbox.
