Symptom

Roaming profile doesn´t get appropriate rights to his HKEY_LOCAL_USER hive, when using DLU volatile Member Group Users

ZENworks Desktop Management 6.5: DLU with roaming profile does not get appropriate rights to his HKEY_LOCAL_USER hive.

1. Login with a user account that has DLU an roaming profile group Users -> the local profile is created and written to the network after logging off, everything works fine.

2. Login to a different workstation with the same account or login to the same workstation with the same account, when DLU is volatile 

the result is, that DLU creates a new local user with a different SID in both cases. But this user doesn´t have full access to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive in the registry.
This causes ZEN user policies fail, as  well as several programs or login operations like setting the clock or variables.
