Known issues

Workspace Environment Management service contains the following issues:

  • Instances of Adobe Reader installed on Windows Server 2012 R2 prevent Workspace Environment Management from associating PDF files with other PDF reader applications. Users are forced to select the PDF reader application each time they open a PDF. [WEM-33]

  • Agent host machine names listed in the WEM service administration console Active Directory Objects tab 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]

  • In the administration console Active Directory Objects tab, using Add Object and Check Name to search and add objects allows only one object to be added at a time. You must close and then reopen the Select Computers or Groups dialog to add another object. (The on-premises version of Workspace Environment Management allows multiple objects to be identified and added without closing the dialog each time.) [WEM-1620]

  • After you migrate your on-premises WEM database to the WEM service, you must reinstall the WEM service agent even if the latest version is installed on your machine. This is necessary because the agent cache cannot synchronize with the WEM service database unless you reinstall the WEM service agent. [WEM-2396]

  • In Transformer (kiosk) mode, and with Log Off Screen Redirection enabled, WEM might fail to redirect the user to the logon page after logging off. [WEM-3133]
