Environment

Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Support Pack 1 - ZDM7 SP1 Application Launcher (NAL)
Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Support Pack 1 - ZDM7 SP1 Management Agent


Travelling users that connect via VPN. Workstation is started without network connection. VPN is started and then the users perform a login.

Situation

When a user connects to the network via VPN and then performs a login, sometimes the NAL-applications start being cached. This happens when there was a change in the grouppolicy (workstation or user).

Resolution

Fixed in ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Service Pack 1 Interim Release 3a, see KB 3484245 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

T
he initial NAL refresh which happens when a user is logged in for getting the applications is delayed by using a configurable registry key "InitialRefreshDelay" created in "HKLM\\Software\\Netware\\NAL\\1.0". The value present in this key corresponds to the the amount of time (in seconds) the initial refresh is to be delayed.
