Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management on Linux Support Pack 1 - ZDML7 SP1 Middle Tier
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux


Desktop Preferences in User Policy Package is set to "Store User Profile in User Home Directory"

User's Home Directory is located on an OES 2 SP1 Server

Workstation does not have Novell client, so Middle Tier server is used

Directory for user's profile is not created on logout, so no profile is stored

Profile is stored correctly if the directory for the user's profile already exists

Profile is stored correctly if Desktop Preferences are configured for a named directory


This is fixed in an update to novell-cifs for OES 2 SP1
