Customizing the number of servers stored in preferredserver.dat

By default, the preferredserver.dat file contains three servers whose test results gave the highest bandwidth at the time of the bandwidth check, in order. You can change the number of servers stored in preferredserver.dat by updating this line in the file in the core server's ldlogon folder. Valid numbers range from 0 to 7. Once you update this file, the changes become part of new or updated agent configurations. You must redeploy your agent configuration to devices for the change to take effect.

; Settings for the lddwnld/ldredirect files, the DynamicPreferredServers is the
; maximum number of preferred servers that will be stored. Set this to 0 to disable
; the dynamic preferred server functionality.
REG51=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\WinClient\SoftwareDistribution\DynamicPreferredServers, 3, , REG_DWORD
