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

    Anyone out in the field grab this yet? I haven’t had the time to try it out but some early opinions would be appreciated.

    When will documentation be posted? I’d rather not have to download the DVD just to get at the docs.

    Is there a schedule for when the other pieces will be integrated into the product?

    We’ll have Patch and Asset Management integrated pretty much straight away.
