aha.. driven by “ConnectionsUserLimit” .. I had set to 1.November 16, 2015 at 09:23 in reply to: Desktop sharing idea #9086
Interesting, if I connect to remote host with “All desktops”, I can connect/shadow a session fine.
If I connect to the local host (same host running virtual desktop), with “All desktops”, if I try to shadow another virtual desktop session, it disconnects my session.
I do limit the per user virtual desktops to 1 – so perhaps this is causing the issue.November 6, 2015 at 11:14 in reply to: Desktop sharing idea #8988
Your reply triggered me to test something. I’m in an all virtual desktop environment across two servers.
I decided to try nxplayer from within my NX session, connecting to the same host as my NX session. It listed only my session, but I was able to change the filter “My Desktop” to “All Desktops”, and all active sessions were displayed.. exactly what I wanted (since I don’t want to change automigrate option).
I then tried the same thing, but connecting to a different host – and I discovered the following:
If the “My Desktops” filter is set, and I connect to a different host, it will open a new NX session (or reconnect existing session) on that server, which is what I don’t want.
If the “All Desktops” filter is set, and I connect to a different host, it will display me all user connections, which is what I want.
So it appears that option/filter will drive whether it launches session or displays desktops for me to shadow.
In player.cfg:option key=”Remote session list owner filter” value=”all sessions”
Bug is that when set to “my sessions”, you cannot change it to “all sessions” easily (i had to try something impossible – connect to my session from within my session – in order for filter to be changed).
