Customizing preferred server prioritization

In order to prevent delays when the most preferred servers do not have a package, the redirection logic will start to prefer servers that have been actually providing files to the device. You can change the preferred server prioritization in preferredserver.dat by updating these lines in the ntstacfg.in# file in the core server's ldlogon folder:

; In order to prevent delays when the most preferred servers do not have a package
; the redirection logic will start to prefer servers that have been actually
; providing files to the client. The following registry options control when a
; server is moved up the list. The ServerHistoryUseCount value indicates the number
; of times a server must be used before it will be moved to the start of the list,
; the ServerHistoryCacheTime value indicates how long it should be remembered (in seconds).
REG52=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\WinClient\SoftwareDistribution\ServerHistoryUseCount, 3, , REG_DWORD
REG53=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\WinClient\SoftwareDistribution\ServerHistoryCacheTime, 3600, , REG_DWORD
