Following are some tips that can help in the installation of DAS:
You can refresh the DAS configuration through the command line by using the ARS/refresh command. For example, ARS.exe/refresh refreshes ARS.exe.
The other way to refresh the DAS configuration is to restart the ARSControl.exe process or reboot the workstation.
The ARS/refresh command is better for managing your environments and does not force a reboot when you make an update to the actions.xml file.
You can close DAS through the command line byusing the ARS /shutdown command. For example, ARS.exe /shutdown shuts down the ARSControl.exe
Set up the actions.xml file by using the standard template provided in the Tools folder or modify the file based on the use case scenarios that you have developed with your users.
You can have different actions.xml files managed locally on the unique workstations in order to have special use cases and common workstations pointing to eDirectory.
Set up eDirectory and iManager after you have stabilized your actions.xml file and want to centrally manage the configuration file. For more information, see Section 25.3.1, Extending the Schema for eDirectory and Section 28.3, Installing the Plug-Ins for iManager.
Set up the workstation to have auto-admin login to a local workstation ID.

Provide a logout button in the Windows Quick Launch toolbar and provide a logout icon on the desktop for the convenience of users. You can also provide a hot key combination such as Ctrl+L.
For example, you can use a shortcut target =“C:\Program Files\Novell\SecureLogin\Desktop Automation Services\ARS.exe” logoff. This is your shortcut properties target setting.
