Novell ZENworks Desktop Management 7 - ZDM7 Desktop Management
Upgrading from ZENworks for Desktops 4.0.1


After upgrading to ZDM7, Group Policy processing is seen to take longer (up to twice as long). If there are many entries in the Group Policy, this delay can be significant (in the order of 30 seconds).


Fixed in ZENworks 7 with SP1 Desktop Management, available at

Additional Information

The Group Policy process was reading the policy more than once, resulting in an unnecessary delay.
