1. The User Logon Reports do not show any data. Why?
- Verify whether the Desktop Central Agents are installed in the client systems that are specified in the Scope of Management.
- Ensure that User Logon Reports has been enabled. Click here for steps to enable.
- When you have two separate Desktop Central installations and both have the same client computers in their scope.
- Check for any firewall running in the machine where Desktop Central is installed. It might block the status update messages that come from client machines. Ensure that the Desktop Central Port (default 8020) is added to the exceptions list.
- When any security software like Symantec or Mcaffe is running in the client machines is blocking the agent communication. Try after stopping it.
- First login after the Desktop Central agent installation in the client machines will not reflect in the report.
2. When I enable User Logon Reports, it takes a long time for user logoff. Why?
When User Logon Reports is enabled, the Desktop Central agent in the client computers executes a VBScript during user logon and logoff to track these events. The VBS files should be associated with WScript.exe so that it gets executed when you try to open the file. When the user has associated the VBS files to be opened in an editor, for example, when the Desktop Central agent tries to execute this script, it does not execute as the default application has been changed. It just waits there till it gets timed out, causing delay in the logoff time. In such cases, the User Logon details cannot be tracked for that particular user. Restoring the file association will fix the issue.
