Question:
We're running smconsole on  Linux Policy Server, the tool works very slow and we'd like to know 
if there's a way to modify configuration ?
Answer:
At first glance, you can stop the Policy Server and edit the 
sm.registry manually. But depending what you want to do, you might 
also use XPSConfig. 

Here a sample to do so for database connection :

You can also use the smldapsetup to connect to a dummy ldap server to 
encrypt the password.

All these are workaround and they are all at your risks.
