Disable or enable recording

May 28, 2016

You install the Session Recording Agent on each Server OS machine for which you want to record sessions. Within each agent is a setting that enables recording for the server on which it is installed. After recording is enabled, Session Recording evaluates the active recording policy, which determines which sessions are recorded.

When you install the Session Recording Agent, recording is enabled. Citrix recommends that you disable Session Recording on servers that are not recorded because they experience a small impact on performance, even if no recording takes place.

To disable or enable recording on a server

  1. Log on to the server where the Session Recording Agent is installed.
  2. From the Start menu, choose Session Recording Agent Properties.
  3. Under Session Recording, select or clear the Enable session recording for this Server OS VDA check box to specify whether or not sessions can be recorded for this server.
  4. When prompted, restart the Session Recording Agent Service to accept the change.

Note: When you install Session Recording, the active policy is Do not record (no sessions are recorded on any server). To begin recording, use the Session Recording Policy Console to activate a different policy.
