Issue



After restarting an SEE-client machine and it completes pre-windows authentication, the machine takes about 20-30% longer time to load windows.


Error



No Error message or failures.


Cause



SEE 7.x client will initialize all the memory needed for maximum possible registered users (1024) and client administrators (1024) while booting. This includes considerable disk I/O operation which contributes to major part of the increased boot-time.


Solution



The issue can be resolved by upgrading to SEE 8.2 or later.

SEE 8.2 optimized the time-performance of booting by using an incremental algorithm to initialize the memory structures. This doesn't effect the maximum number of registered users or client administrators that can be created on the SEE client.
