Fact

Novell ZENworks Asset Management 7 - ZAM7 SP1

Symptom

The problem is that when there is a lot of data, the time required to initally populate the Software Compliance Report page is excessive, and the user clearly expects  to hit search to get something to happen.

Fix

Here are the details for setting the options in SP1:

To change the behavior of reports within the Software Compliance Module, so that reports with filter options do not run until a filter is set up and the "Search" button is pressed, a tag needs to be added to RtrSetup.xml. This tag should be added within the <ReportServerSetup> tag:

<param>

<name>PreLoadRightSCM</name>

<value>no</value>

</param>

To prevent usage numbers from showing on all SCM reports except for the Compliance report, add this tag:

<param>

<name>ShowUsageOnSCM</name>

<value>no</value>

</param>

Note that both of these default to "yes". If the tag is not found in rtrsetup.xml, then the behavior will be the same as if these were present and set to "yes".
