Hi Jiten,

You can only have one policy effective for 1 person at any one time.  You can drill into the user and see its "effective policy" via the web console of the Universal Server.  What exactly are you trying to achieve with more then one policy?

Actualy I have Made 4 groups with 4 consumer policy which are as mention below.

1. Internal HDD encryption Policy

2. USB driver Encryption Policy.

3. Net Share Enable Policy.

4. Virtual Drive Encryption Policy.

Now one user raise a request to have all upper from 1 to 3 policy to be applied on his User Account, but when i am doing that onle one policy is appliing in one time.

You would have to create a policy that has all settings from 1 2 and 3 together, and assign that user to that policy group.  You might be better off reconfiguring your policy to be based on user function rather than technological function i.e.:

  • The Sales dept needs to have netshare enabled
  • The technical dept needs internal hdds encrypted, netshare and usb driver encrypted
  • The HR dept needs virtual drive and netshare

So instead of creating a policy based on internal hdd, usb etc., you create one for sales, one for technical and one for HR.
