Novell ZENworks 10 Configuration Management with Support Pack 1 - 10.1 Authentication


Group Policies will not apply when logging in if different eDirectory users having different Group policies assigned to them
log in with the same local account.


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

Additional Information

The root cause is that ZCM creates the cache with local user name and not with the ZENworks user name.
