The customer has setup a "Site List" so that an application will be launched from the local site.
However, in some cases the app is opening the remote instead of the local application.


Configured the Novell Client32 IP Costing to 1 (Use Network Subnet to Determine Closest Server)
Depending on Network Configuration, other costing methods may be more reliable

Additional Information

Once the closest server has been determined for an application, this result is stored in NALCache.
This is not recalculated dynamically.
