Even if the"hidden" set parameters are displayed in iManager or Monitor, they are not read by the process that creates a Set Parameter Policy, and so cannot be set by that policy.


ZENworks Server Management SET Parameter Policies are not designed to access the"hidden" parameters. If it is necessary to makes these settings subject to a policy, use a policy or cpk to update the autoexec.ncf file to include a line "set parameter=value".
If it is necessary to set the value immediately, a cpk or post-distribution task of loading "set parameter=value" can be used to do that.
