When updating ZENworks agent, the percentage complete seems to fluctuate

This document (7013415) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 System Update
Novell ZENworks Asset Management 11.2
Novell ZENworks Endpoint Security Management 11.2
Novell ZENworks Full Disk Encryption 11.2
Novell ZENworks Patch Management 11.2


The "balloon tip" message that displays the percentage complete for the agent during System Update seems to go backwards and forwards - for example it may say

ZENworks update 13%
ZENworks update 50%
ZENworks update 13%
ZENworks update 50%
ZENworks update 13%
ZENworks update 82%
ZENworks update 13%
ZENworks update 88%


What is happening is that one of the earlier messages is not being cleared, a new message overlays that, and when the new message is cleared, the old message can still be seen. There is no impact on functionality with this issue, the System Update is continuing normally.
