11.4.2 odd behavior

So I am going to throw out a generality that I can't say for sure it is a
problem but I am thinking it may be. Since updating my clients to 11.4.2
win7pro 64 I have noticed so far an app that I have assigned to all devices
triggered on user login is no longer running. it shows it as available.
Before 11.4.2 my "disable windows 10 update" bundle would always get rid of
the nagware update me in the task tray. now I am noticing the nagware being
visible on newly imaged computers. this is the second bundle I have come
across that is no longer force running based on triggered on user login. I
first noticed this on an app I created for some newly imaged win10 systems.
but I blew it off as an anomaly and changed my image to fix what the bundle
was going to do. But now this bundle that has always worked is not running.
I was able to BV it with no issues. So I was just wondering if anyone else
is seeing this. I will test some more and probably open an SR.

Re: 11.4.2 odd behavior

Remember that "Login" bundles do not run the 1st time at login.
The only run on the 2nd login and later.

This is because that the Login Actions are processed 1st, then a refresh occurs to learn about such bundles, and they will then run on next login.
I traditionally recommend using "refresh" events to avoid this issue and they will actually run on 1st logon.

Note: If this is not the issue, I would recommend testing "BOTH" Login types, just to try and verify. Furthermore, at one point the "Login" events did not work if you disabled the ZCM Credential Provider, so if there is another credential provider in play
this could be part of the issue. Can't recall if this was ever pursued or fixed, I just recall someone noting that one time.


In regard to the "Nagware", I actually use a Software Restriction Policy to prohibit it 🙂

PMJI, but where is this Software Restriction Policy?
