Environment

Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 2 - 10.2.1
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Service Pack 2 running ZCM and internal Sybase
Microsoft Windows XP Professional Support Pack 3
Windows server 2003 running Active Directory (not a member of the ZCM zone)

Situation

Group Policies are not enforced on target managed devices.

Microsoft Active Directory Group Policies imported into ZCC and assigned to devices show successfully applied on the properties of the Z icon but the policy is not enforced.

Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy to enable Windows Firewall is one of the group policies that is not enabled on managed ZCM device.

Resolution

This is fixed in version 10.2.1 - see KB 7003766 "ZENworks 10 Configuration Management 10.2.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Additional Information

There may be other Microsoft Active Directory Group Policies that are not enforced, but in this instance, the policy being tested was the policy to enable the Windows Firewall.
