We just setup a W2K3 Server to be a middle tier server and have started testing our clients without the Novell client. The only issue we have seen is that Group Policies will not apply. I first tried it using the standard Windows GINA instead of the ZENworks supplied one, and in the debug logs, I see an error that it is unable to copy the policy file.

Then, I tried using the ZENworks GINA and the debug log basically says this:

User status not in registry or error state. Assuming no policy. Doing no cleanup.

If I look in the scheduler, the correct policy is there, but is never applied.

What am I missing? And, is the ZENworks GINA required in this environment for policies to work? An FYI, we have used policies for years and they work fine for us with the Novell Client, just those clients without it are not.
