Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.3


Different users login to a Windows terminal server at about the same time.
The users have different policy and/or bundle assignments

Depending on user session refresh timing, a user has effective exactly the same assignments as a different logged-in user while the configured assignments are actually not the same for both users.


The ZCM agent caches a checksum of the server reply for assignments but currently the agent only differentiates between user and device assignments. It does not keep such a checksum for every user sessions.

Based on the timing of user login, the agent can reuse the same checksum for a different user session and the same cached assignments from a different user reapplies for the current user session.
