ZCM 11.x User Login when connected to other networks delayed

Hi,
Anyone have any ideas how to disable or reduce the timeout when a notebook connected to other netowrks eg. Home, Hotel, Wifi etc.

We have no extra delay when connected cooperate lan or not connected to any lan but we have more than minutes delay when users connected to home dsl, wifi etc. If there any time out we can set for user agent login?

Regards,
Kuru

Eumetsatzcm,

if you set your locations right, you can set the "unknown" location to
have no closest servers - then any machine which is outside your
network will not attempt to talk to a server. Do be careful to make
sure you don't isolate any machines that /are/ in your network though

If you set a location to have no servers, then what happens when This pc connects to a work network, how does it know of a location change and which servers to pull the settings from? Is it able to get the settings through the zone? Just like to know 😉

In ZCM 11, the full list of Locations and settings are downloaded to the
PC. Then when it starts up, it analyzes it's IP and related settings to
determine its location and associated servers.

So, moving back from a Serverless Location is not an issue since it will
know what to do when it moves back to a work location. ZCM 10 and it's
Closest Server Rules tended to not handle this as well.

One of the many enhancements that "Locations" provide.

Re: ZCM 11.x User Login when connected to other networks del

Thanks for that Shaun that is what I thought and I did experiment but ran into problems so I did simple locations and then disable the default closet run and it works correctly after the first reboot.

No locations set it took about a 60 to 70 sec for user source login but with locations and closet rule turned off for unknown and default location it only takes about 10 to 15 sec.

But in the process I found that locations has few bugs

1) if you define a location with wifi access point then the automatic change of location doesn't work even for lan enviroments

2) Also Client IP settings must be set in correct format
192.168.1.* not correct
192.168.1.0/24

Also if you export and import network definitions then you can't edit that definition.
