AD allows user groups to be nested - ZCM only reads groups one level deep for bundle association
If a bundle is associated to an AD group, only users who are direct members of that group will receive the bundle: users who are members of nested groups will not receive the bundle.


This is fixed in version 11.1 - see KB 7008746 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
