Large numbers of users in the File System Access Control List (ACL) (typically over 100) for directories used in the DLU File Rights policy can have a significant affect on the Novell Client login times through Terminal Server with or without Citrix when using Dynamic Local User (DLU). The number of files under the directory structure is also a factor, because the permissions propagation to the child objects requires more time to evaluate. The more objects that are being evaluated, the more significant the performance degradation becomes.
- Setting up a separate Terminal Server/Citrix server as load increases to the point of degradation.
