I was working with Symantec Workspace Corporate today on a Windows 2008 R2 Server.  Everything was working fine when I was attempting to use the agent from the SWC Server (I was doing some SSO work).  As soon as I went to access the server from a client machine, I was getting a Session Denied message.  I had added the Domain Users to the "Allow log on through Remote Desktop Services" policy, it still wasn't working.  One additional step was required.

Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System, and you will see a link for Allow Remote Access.  You have to configure this as well.  On the remote tab, there is a button to Select Users.  Add the users here and all is well.  This is probably documented in our Guide, but if you found this post, you probably like me didn't read the guide.

Hope this helps someone in the future.

I often ask my IT audiences when I speak at events "What is our purpose?" In other words, why do IT people do what they do and get paid for it? The answer is simpler than most people try to make it. Our primary purpose is to support end-user productivity. If we fail at that, then nothing else we do would be of any value and we would be out of jobs. I will admit there is a secondary category that is protecting confidential data (another thing Symantec is really good at). But that would also be moot if there was nothing of value worth protecting.

So what do users need to be productive, and how do we make sure that they have it? I mentioned in the last blog that "the desktop (virtual or otherwise) is the work environment, not the work itself." Think of the desktop as an office you enter to do your work. You want a comfortable chair, good lighting etc., but if you...

Feb 1st a new version of VME (Virtual Memory Extender) will be released.
The new version is available in 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64 GB.
With VME you can run your desktops, servers and Virtual machines with up to 64 GB of virtual memory without adding fysical memory modules.
This is very helpfull if your desktop or server does not support more memory modules or your operating system does not support more then 3 GB of memory.

Experience the power of your desktop, laptop or server running up to 64 GB of memory besides the fysical memory added.

If your server has 32 GB of memory, the VME installed in your virtual servers allows you to use more memory then your fysical host contains allowing to run double the density of vm's per host.

VME contains a subset of routines to make your desktops faster running Symantec Virtualised Applications. The specific VSA controls make your virtualised applications run up to twice as fast as usual.

I have been working on a interesting issue with our team in China.  Everything seems to be working with the execption of couple of user logins.  To help our team figure this out, we had to turn on debugging.  I wanted to post the steps to turn on the logging function.

You will need to add two registry keys to enable logging.  The keys will vary based on whether you are using version 6.1 or 6.2

[6.2 Registry Keys]

HKLM\Software\Symantec\Workspace Remote

DWORD DebugFlags with a value of 1

String LogDir with a value of "C:\Debug" or any other valid path

[6.1 Registry Keys]

HKLM\Software\Symantec\Workspace Remote\SWC

DWORD DebugFlags with a value of 1

String LogDir with a value of "C:\Debug" or any other valid path

You should create the path specified in the LogDir key.  You will also need to reboot the machine to start the logging function.
