3.0 Using Domain Mode

You’ve seen how to use the X Manager in standalone mode to start and work with a session. Now, let’s look at how your enterprise can benefit from some of the powerful features available when you run Reflection X Advantage in domain mode. You’ll find features that benefit both administrators and individual users.

As an administrator, you can:

  • Configure settings and make them available to users in the domain. All of the settings required by end users can be centrally controlled and managed.

  • Configure distributed sessions, which can provide several advantages, including session persistence and improved performance in slow networks.

  • Leverage an established authentication system to control access to the domain.

  • Configure load balancing of the computers in the domain to make the best use of system resources.

  • View the status of all of the sessions running in the domain, and view domain system resources.

As a user, you can:

  • Start a session, leave it, close X Manager, and then join the session later from the same computer or from a different computer.

  • Use public definitions provided by the administrator to run pre-defined sessions and/or create and run your own customized private sessions.

  • Easily share sessions with other users in the domain. (In standalone mode, you have to send a URL to other users to share a session. In domain mode, no such URL exchange is required.)
