The Centrify agent for Mac OS X performs network checks during startup to determine whether the device is connected to the domain. The parameter sets the maximum time the agent waits for the network before deciding to boot in either connected or disconnected mode. The default value is five seconds.

If DNS latency is high in your environment, the agent might determine that the device is in a Disconnected state too soon.

You can increase the value for the parameter if it’s appropriate for your network environment; however, this might result in increased boot times.
