Session Recording

Enable or disable live session playback

If sessions are recorded with the live playback feature enabled, you can view a session after or while it is being recorded. Viewing a session that is being recorded is similar to seeing actions happening live. However, there is actually a delay of 1-2 seconds when the data propagates from the VDA.

Some functionality is not available when you view live playback sessions:

  • A digital signature can’t be assigned and you can’t view the certificate until recording is completed.
  • Playback protection can’t be applied until recording is complete. If playback protection is enabled, you can view live playback sessions. But they are not encrypted until the session is completed.
  • You can’t cache a file until recording is completed.

By default, live session playback is enabled.

  1. Log on to the computer hosting the Session Recording server.
  2. From the Start menu, choose Session Recording Server Properties.
  3. In Session Recording Server Properties, click the Playback tab.
  4. Select or clear the Allow live session playback check box.
