3.8 Recording a Remote Management Session

From ZENworks 2020 Update 2 onwards as an experimental support, you can record the remote management session. The recording is supported with Remote Control, Remote View, and Remote Diagnostics.

By default, the recorded sessions are saved in the following location:

%appdata%\Novell\ZENworks\Remote Management\bin\session_recordings

The recordings are saved in the following format hostname mm_dd_yyyy hrs_mins_sec AM/PM

By default recording is disabled by the agent. To enable it, a Remote Management policy should be assigned.
