If you disable the Package Server and NS Client software, you can set the blockout type of either Standard or Total. Standard is the default.
Disable configuration requests and sending basic inventory at startup and after blockouts for up to
This disables Client Settings policy requests and sending basic inventory at startup after the blockout has ended for up to a certain amount of time. This is set up to avoid the problem of having all NS Clients waking up at the same time and sending basic inventory and doing Client Settings policy requests at the same time. Whatever time you choose, the basic inventory and Client Settings policy requests will be sent at a random time within this time frame.
For example, if you choose 30 minutes, the NS Client sends basic inventory and Client Settings policy requests at a random time between 1 minute and 30 minutes. This staggers the waking up of all NS Clients and prevents the Notification Server from being overwhelmed following a blockout. The larger amount of NS Clients you have, the longer the time you should choose.
The default is Do not disable which means that NS Clients immediately start sending out basic inventory and Client Settings policy requests.
