Known issues

Workspace Environment Management service contains the following issues:

  • Agent host machine names listed on the Active Directory Objects tab of the WEM service administration console do not update automatically to reflect changes to machine names. To display the new name of a machine in the Machines list, you must manually delete the machine from the Machines list, and then add the machine again. [WEM-1549]

  • The Restore wizard might take a long time to load the Active Directory (AD) objects after you select Machines as the type of AD objects you want to restore and click Next. The issue occurs when there is a large number of OUs (for example, 4,000). [WEM-5169]

  • Registry entries might not take effect if you assign them to a user or user group through an action group. However, they do take effect if you assign them directly. The issue occurs when you assign registry entries to be created in one of the following locations:
    • %ComputerName%\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies
    • %ComputerName%\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies [WEM-5253]
  • The Use Cache Even When Online option on the Administration Console > Advanced Settings > Configuration > Agent Options tab might not work. [WEM-6118]
