ZCM 11.2.3: Prompt Action is not displayed when the prompt message contains text in braces {}

This document (7012014) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.3 Bundles
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.3a Bundles

Situation

If the prompt for a bundle contains text in braces (also known as "curly brackets") like {Example} then the prompt is not displayed

This problem is not seen with {0} (which is used to display a countdown)

This problem is not seen with System Variables like ${variable} (i.e., when the opening brace is preceded with a dollar sign)

Resolution

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 http://www.novell.com/support/search.do?usemicrosite=true&searchString=7012027

Workaround: if it is not possible to upgrade to ZCM 11.2.4 at this time, in the interim, Novell has made a Patch available for testing, as part of a Monthly patch update: it can be obtained at http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=s5zcEae9xcI~ as "ZCM 11.2.3a Monthly Update 1 - see TID 7012025". This update should only be applied if the symptoms above are being experienced, and are causing problems.

Please report any problems encountered when using this Patch, by using the feedback link on this TID.

Workaround: use a different character than a brace in the prompt
