Login script commands in "Member of Group" statement do not execute

This document (7014158) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows

Situation

A login script for the OU may contain a statement such as:

IF MEMBER OF "GroupOne" THEN
  MAP ROOT Z:=Server1\Vol2:\APPS\AppOne
END

Even though user "William" is a member of group "GroupOne", drive Z: is not mapped when the login script is executed.

When viewing the attributes of the user object (after completing an LDIF export using the Import Conversion Export Utility), inspection of the ACL properties reveal a missing #[Root]#groupMembership from the affected user. User "Susan" has the "#[Root]#groupMembership" attribute listed.
