Wrong login name in inventory

This document (7012838) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Inventory
Novell ZENworks Asset Management 11.2


On French Windows 7 login name in inventory shows as système


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


On French Windows 7 the system account name is translated to système which is not the case on e.g.,  French Windows XP.

Additional Information

Since ZCM 11.2.2, if Windows returns system or empty string as logged-in user name using the GetUserName Windows function, the name gets verified through the WMI framework. In case a a good name is still not found for the logged-in user, the login name gets populated with the Windows owner name value as stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\RegisteredOwner.
