Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Policies


When a ZENworks user logs in for the first time on a Device, the user policies are applied correctly. However, if a local user logs in subsequently, on the next ZENworks login the User assigned Group Policy will fail to apply.

* This happens only if the Device has Workstation Group Policy applied as well.


This is fixed in version 11.2.2 - see KB 7010757 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.2 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at

Workaround: if it is not possible to upgrade to 11.2.2 at this time, in the interim, Novell has made a Patch available for testing, as part of a Monthly patch update: it can be obtained at as "ZCM 11.2.1 Monthly Update 1 - see TID 7010464". This update should only be applied if the symptoms above are being experienced, and are causing problems.

Please report any problems encountered when using this Patch, by using the feedback link on this TID.
