Fact

Novell ZENworks 6.5 Desktop Management - ZfD6.5

Novell Application Launcher (NAL)

Novell ZENworks Management Agent + Client

Microsoft Active Desktop

Symptom

Icons are not in the same position after ZfD65 agent install.

Cause

Prior to installing the ZfD 6.5 agent, the workstation had Active Desktop enabled and NAL and Windows icons were placed randomly across the desktop.  After installing the agent, all of the icons are automatically arranged on the left-side of the desktop, instead of in their original position.

Fix

Possible workaround:  Disable Active Desktop and then re-enable it after the agent has been installed (you can Disable Active Desktop via Group Policies). The icons will now stay in the appropriate locations from this point on.

Fixed in ZENworks 6.5 SP2 and in the agent that ships with ZENworks 7
