Increase the speed of the CLIv2 logon process by limiting the number of host name resolution requests issued by the applications.
  1. Set an environment variable with the name equal to the machine name with a specified number of COPS available for it.
    set machine_name=cops
    machine_name
    name of the Vantage system, or tdpid
    cops
    number of COPS
  2. Open the System Properties dialog box.
    Tip: Open a command prompt and type SYSDM.CPL .
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Click Environment Variables and add or edit the machine_name system environment variable.
  5. Set the SHOGUN system environment variable to 3 as follows:
    set SHOGUN=3
    Setting SHOGUN=3 causes CLIv2 to issue GetHostByName for SHOGUNCOP1, SHOGUNCOP2, and SHOGUNCOP3 only. If one of the GetHostByName requests fails, the successive requests are not issued.
  6. Add or edit the SHOGUN system environment variable.
