So while you might think you are in network management nirvana because you pushed out Office 2010 via Group Policy without messing around with full fat deployment systems, you have really just made sure that no one downtown can do anything on Monday morning for three hours while everyone applies your Group Policy object (GPO).Back in Windows XP, Microsoft introduced fast logon optimization, which took a bunch of GPO processing that was previously required to work in real time and transformed those processes into ones that could be churned through in the background.directory on the system that serves files for MATLAB.When you first install MATLAB on this system, you or your system administrator needs to generate the cache. You also need to regenerate the cache file whenever toolbox directories are added or removed so that the cache does not hold out-dated path information.Reading it from a pre-generated cache however, is significantly faster.
The toolbox path cache stores search path information on all toolbox directories under the MATLAB root directory.
The user must still be connected to the corporate network and must be able to contact the domain controller, as always, for the policy to actually be applied, but the cache itself speeds up logging on to and starting up the computer.
Also, once processing from the cache begins, it will not stop during that policy application session, even if the policies themselves on the domain controller are updated.
This is especially likely to happen on a new machine that has just been deployed, and users may report long pauses and spinning progress wheels as Windows alters settings like folder redirection.
The operating system can also hang while installing software through Group Policy and Microsoft Installer (MSI) packages, which require application before anything can happen on the user side.
