Zenworks policy fails after relogin

I have found that the policy will fail for some users if when they login
for the first time they can logout and logback in and it wont have any of
the restrictions. is there a way to fix this, as they do this every day.

Re: Zenworks policy fails after relogin

Hey Scott,

we are having the same problem. We have seen this occur not only on
policies, but on bundles. It may take 3-4 relogins for the policies and/or
bundles to take effect.

That includes changing the version numbers (increment). I have been working
on a bundle to push out the latest JAVA. I created a bundle that copies the
full installer to the workstation. Then does the install. After each "Tweak"
I change the version number. If I then login to a user on the test
workstation, the zenworks agent shows the bundle but it has a version that
is one or two versions older. It takes SEVERAL log off and log ons to update
it.

Does anyone know of a way to FORCE the policies and bundles to apply with
every login?? That is, if a workstation if supposed to get a bundle, then it
does. And everytime a user logs in, they get the policies that they are
supposed to applied?

I can't have users logging in and having full access to their C drives, the
network, The Run Command, and heaven forbid....thier desktop settings...that
just won't do.

Thanks
MIke

Re: Zenworks policy fails after relogin

Thanks for the reply, Is there any one in this forum that can help with
this policy error. we have found that getting the policy to refresh does
work but this means that the computer freezes while it is loading the
policies. Although not for a long time, long enough to be annoying.

Scott,

you would need to look at the zmd-messages.log (might need to raise it
to debug level) to see what's happening with the policy

C:\Program Files\Novell\Zenworks\Logs\LocalStore\zmd-messages.log

You can set the Logging Level inside ZCM Admin webpage, under Configuration, Device Management, Local Device Logging
