After creating a global policy that disables floppy drives and publishing the policy to the agent,  the floppy drive is not disabled


A fix for this issue is intended to be included in a future update to the product: however, in the interim, Novell has made a Patch available for testing, in the form of a Field Test File (FTF): it can be obtained at https://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=I3e6-LL97mM~ as part of "ZCM 11.0 - Cumulative Agent Patch 1". This Patch should only be applied if the symptoms above are being experienced, and are causing problems.This Patch has had limited testing, and should not be used in a production system without first being checked in a test environment. This patch has specific requirements for deployment, it is very important to follow any instructions in the readme at the download site. Please report any problems encountered when using this Patch, by using the feedback link on this TID.
