Network usage showing as unrestricted for some computers

Two computers are showing as network usage is unrestricted when they have valid throttling settings active.


The Enable Bandwidth Control option under the Software Delivery tab of the Notification Server agent is unchecked.


This option can be manually checked or the registry entry can be set as below:

Name: Enable Bandwidth Control          Value: 1

This can be done by creating a .reg file containing:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"Enable Bandwidth Control"=dword:00000001

and then running the following command line on the affected computers (confirmed for Microsoft Windows* 2003 and XP):

regedit /s <name/path of reg file>

It is not necessary to restart the Notification Server agent, and the changes will be reflected after the next configuration request.

It is recommended that this option be hidden from the user.
