Windows sessions recorded by a connector

If you are already auditing session activity on Windows computers, you might notice a few differences between sessions recorded directly on a Windows computer that has an agent installed and the remote desktop sessions recorded by the Centrify connector. For example, if a Windows session is recorded by the connector, you might notice the following differences:

  • Windows sessions recorded by the connector do not include an indexed list of events.
  • You cannot specify any agent configuration settings, such as the color depth to use or the offline data storage location.
  • There is no role-based auditing or integration to skip auditing for some activity or to audit only privileged activity.
  • Windows sessions recorded by the connector do not include any information about the DirectAuthorize desktop being used or about desktop changes. However, you can use the desktop label to determine the desktop used for different operations when replaying Windows sessions.
