20.5 Logging in to the User Source is Slow

Logging in to the user source on a ZENworks server from the managed device might take some time because the login process executes the device refresh synchronously.

To speed up the login process, perform the following steps to execute the device refresh asynchronously:

  1. Open the Registry Editor.

  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\ZCM

  3. Create a string called ZENLoginUserRefreshAsync and set its value to TRUE.

  4. Log in to the device again.

IMPORTANT:If you change the login process to execute the device refresh asynchronously, the latest policies might not be immediately available. With this change, you make the login performance more important than the accuracy of the policies.
