Symptom

Applications do not show up for users with a dot in the CN of their user object

Fact

Novell ZENworks for Desktops 4 - ZFD4

Novell ZENworks 6.5 Desktop Management - ZfD6.5

Change

if a user object has a dot in the CN  ( firstname.lastname ) then that user will not see any applications that were associated to the OU in which the user resides he will see applications that are directly associated to the user

Fix

Working as Designed.  This is not supported in Zenworks 4.x . Zenworks 6.5 supports this (provided the Client's Advanced Login Setting "Allow Dots in NetWare Username" is set to "yes"), but before SP1, it requires that the Application Inheritance level for the user is set to one more than would normally be required

Fixed in ZfDAgent.msi version (6.5.84.50204) or newer in ZENworks 6.5 SP1 or newer found at Novell Product Updates https://support.novell.com/filefinder/
