You broke our download infrastructure!
I’m tracking down the exact details – but the popularity and demand for this beta has caused many of you to get errors from our content distribution network.
This is the most popular beta program for a ZENworks release I have known. I would not be surprised if in excess of a Terabyte has been downloaded in the last day or so.
For those that are trying to get hold of the beta – here are a few tips:
From Michel Bluteau in Canada this tip:
After trying multiple tools for downloading ZCM10.ISO, which is 4 Gb, I realized that the most reliable and fastest tool for me was wget on SLED(SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop), also available on other Linux.
The command below will allow a partial download to resume, even if the initial download was performed with a different tool, with the -c option:
wget -c –http-user=username –http-password=password ‘http://cdn.novell.com/prot/zcLS90Uacvs~/ZCM10.iso‘
make sure you choose a filesystem that can handle a filesize bigger than 4 Gb. Reiser or ext3 will do, but vfat won’t for example.
I hope this info can save you some time.
Also the ISO is 4GB in size; this means that BorderManager as a proxy can’t handle it; also Internet Explorer has problems.
From Shaun Pond:
Looks like the file is >4gb, and IE doesn’t like this – for the moment,
use a download manager, such as flashget
