Director ProxySG Software - SGOS

Issue/Introduction

In some instances after upgrading to SGME 6.1.x, you might notice overlays take longer to apply than they did previously.

Cause

One cause of this is DNS latency and how ProxySG appliances are added to the Director. 

Resolution

Try the following in the specified order:
  1. Change the hostname of Director to the FQDN.  This will help with DNS suffix issues and name resolution when only hostnames are used.
  2. Remove the ProxySG appliance and add it back without specifying the hostname (use the IP address).
  3. If you use the hostname field, make sure to use FQDN and not just the hostname.  For example, use mysg.mydomain.com instead of just mysg.
