  • To reset a single setting to the default value, click the setting in the list, and then click Reset current row to default value.

  • To reset all settings in the list to the default values, click Reset to default values.

Available settings are:

Setting name

Description

ALWAYS_USE_SMTP

Use SMTP instead of messaging service for e-mail delivery.

CID_REMOVAL_CLEANUP_DAYS

Number of days between customer deletion and permanent removal of data from the database.

DATA_UPDATE_JOB_NAME

The default name of the Snow License Manager Data Update Job.

DATAUPDATEJOB_DELTA

If enabled, only information on new machines will be processed on a daily basis by the Data Update Job. Existing machines will be updated according to the interval specified by the DATAUPDATEJOB_DELTA_FULL_DAY setting.

Note

Consult Snow before enabling this setting.

DATAUPDATEJOB_DELTA_FULL_DAY

Used with the DATAUPDATEJOB_DELTA setting. Sets a day of the week when a full update (information on both new and existing machines) will be processed by the Data Update Job.

DB_SHRINK_ACTIVE

If active, it performs a database shrink command before and after the Data Update Job.

Note

The default permissions for the licensemanageruser role is not enough to be allowed to shrink databases.

To be able to shrink databases, users must configure their permission to the right level. Add the licensemanageruser as a member in the db_owner fixed database role. It is also possible to add the licensemanageruser as a member in the sysadmin fixed server role, but this is not recommended due to security issues.

This optimization option shortens the time of the Data Update Job. However, disabling the database checkpoints might increase the size of the database log file.
