We make new simulations of S U(2) zero spatial momentum (ZM) gluon correlator in Landau gauge gluodynamics paying special attention to possible lattice artefacts and Gribov copy effect. In particular we started investigation of the correlator dependence on the choice of boundary conditions (BCs) by comparing results for periodic and zerofield (ZF) boundary conditions at various β values. Time behaviour of the ZM correlator for ZF BCs corresponds to approximately constant in time effective gluon mass thus providing additional evidence in favour of decoupling behaviour of momentum-dependent gluon propagator in the IR region. We have found that at fixed lattice sizes and β values the ZM gluon correlator and effective gluon mass for periodic and ZF boundary conditions can differ considerably.
