This document provides troubleshooting guidelines for common problems related to deployment of policies in a ZENworks 11 SP3 system. If, after completing the troubleshooting steps, the problem is not resolved, please contact Novell Technical Support for additional help.

NOTE: If the policy is not showing up on a test device or for a test user, make sure that the Sandbox version is the active version. Only Sandbox policies can be deployed to test devices and users.
If the policy is user assigned, check the following:
Is the user logged in to ZENworks on the device?
Has the device been refreshed (ZENworks icon >) since the policy assignment was made and the user logged in?
Is user authentication configured correctly? For troubleshooting help, see ZENworks 11 SP3 Troubleshooting Authentication.

Ensure that DNS is working correctly by performing an nslookup (on the device) of the IP address or DNS name of the Primary or Satellite Server from which the device receives its policy content. You can run zac zc -l on the device to see the IP addresses and DNS names of the content servers.
