Are there any plans when you want to implement SSON?

We are planning to implement Smartcard+PIN for Windows Authentication. If we start with that we will have problems to authenticate to RDM.

Best regards,
Andy

Ohh and only use the commandlets like Set-RDMSession - without the second dash. The commandlets with 2 dashes are old - the new ones are much more performant.

Hello Maurice,

could you find out something with the debug information after our last session?

Hello Marvin,

are you sure that the snapin is loaded in your external powershell? I created a powershell profile that I am sure it is loaded automatically and I only use the x86 version of powershell for RDM:

In C:\Windows\SysWOW64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0 create a file named profile.ps1 with this content:


$RDMSnapin = Get-PSSnapin -Name *Remote.Desktop* -Registered | sort version -Descending | select -First 1
Add-PSSnapin $RDMSnapin

Then be sure to use the x86 version of powershell from here:
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe

Best regards,
Andy

Hello Maurice,

in our tests RDM11 solved our issues. As soon as I've done the deployment of it and did the update of the server I'll inform you.

Hello!

At the moment we have 35 users with about 2200 entries in our main datasource. Sometimes the software can get really slow and shaky.

We also added our admins from plants to our datasource - they complained much more about the performance. Our plants are connected with datalines.
Now I put them into an own datasource and they say that it is much faster and smoother.

What is a recommended amount of users and maximum entries per datasource? How should a recommended installation with more than one plant on a central server look like?

Best regards,
Andy

Wow...that boosts my script :-) now it only needs about a half second for one connection. I always thought that I am working with the new commands. Thanks for this tip.

I was just looking for this option because I thought that this is already possible. I thought someone showed me that this works but I may be wrong. Should it be in the actual Beta?

Hello!

I have a similar script running to add sessions for remote assistance. However, if I try to use the Snchronizer for AD it is much more performant than the script. The synchronizer is able to add 40 sessions in a second where my script needs about 4 seconds for 1 session.

Also if I only try this command it needs about 4 seconds:


Measure-Command {
$session = New-RDM-Session -Name "Name" -Group "RemoteAssistance" -Kind "RemoteAssistance" -TemplateID b507b9f3-991e-4f75-b9b1-d1ff201ab853
Set-RDM-Session $session
}

How can the built-in synchronizer work so fast?

Best regards,
Andy

Hello Stefane,

I really want this problem to be solved. It is very important for us. My offline.db just got malformed again when I tried to add a new local favorite.

If I compare the filesize:
normal: 1727 KB
malformed: 92 KB

I'll send you the file because I know that you will treat confidentially with this data and I don't think that there is too much information in it. Perhaps only the few sessions left...

Best regards,
Andy

For us it happens almost every morning. In the evening I close RDM and then shut down the pc. When I start it again in the morning the offline.db is malformed.

We have the "Disable Multi-Thread offline file" check activated. Unfortunately it was only a solution at the beginning when you added this function.

Hello!

This issue appears again for a lot of users now very often. I'm not sure but I think it started more often with the new version of DVLS (2.5.0.0).
I found also this entry here in the forum what looks the same: https://forum.devolutions.net/topic14013-no-sessions-in-offline-mode.aspx
Here David asked to try to make an exception in the Anti-Virus software for the offline.db file. We will do that, however, on a fresh installed PC without Anti-Virus software this issue also appeared.

Again, find a logfile attached.

Best regards,
Andy

It is very hard to determine if the new beta has solved the problem but at the moment this looks ok again.
I've installed it only on the PC of the colleague who "created" that strange entries.

Hello!

I am using custom installer to create preconfigured installation files. After that I make a deployment to automatically update all PCs.
If I now start RDM it recognizes that there is a new configuration and asks what to do. Can I somehow force it to use the new configuration?

Best regards,
Andy

SSON with RDMS would be a great feature!

Hello!

I collected some feedback of users and they told me some wishes.

1. When you edit a session and view the variable list it sometimes would be useful to see what value a variable actually would have.
2. It would be comfortabel to copy/duplicate a session with Drag&Drop by press and hold CTRL+LMB like in Windows and also with CTRL+C/CTRL+V
3. Sometimes it could be useful to be able to have more than one "Properties"-window open. Especially to compare 2 sessions or during creating a new session take a look on an existing session.

Best regards,
Andy

Hello Stefane,

sorry for the late answer, I was not in the office at the end of last week.
This morning I've sent you information from the profiler of two affected machines. Hope this helps.

We will also test the option when you release the next version.

Best regards,
Andy

unfortunately the same issue appears again with V 10.4.1.0 and 10.5.0.0.
Can I somehow offer you more information to eliminate it?

The issue appeared again for a user. There was only one process for RDM running. After clearing up the cache I could find this new messages in the log, never saw them before:

Hi Maurice,

yes, I can check that if it happens again. But how can there be another RDM process? I tried to manually start it twice, then there is a second process for about a second but then it ends. RDM works normal after I did that.

Best regards,
Andy
