Maximum delay for card update check after Windows logon (in minutes)

Defines how long (in minutes) ActivClient waits after Microsoft Windows logon before it contacts ActivID CMS to determine if smart card updates are available. To spread the requests received by CMS, this delay is a random value - between 0 and the maximum delay defined in this setting (in minutes).

Recommended values are between 5 and 120.

If this setting is not configured, then the delay is set to 120 minutes.


Supported on: At least Windows Vista SP1
