How do I get to this dialog box?

From X Manager or X Manager for Domains or the X Administrative Console

  1. (Administrative Console only) Click the Domain Definitions tab.

  2. In the left pane, select an existing session definition or click next to Sessions Definitions to create a new one.

  3. In the Session Definition pane on the right, click the General tab.

The options are:

Option Description
Session name The name for this session definition. This name identifies your session in the Session Definitions list.
Show clients on X terminal desktop Select to run all clients in a single window, and have your display appear similar to the standard display of an X terminal. This is sometimes referred to as "single window" mode. This option is required for XDMCP connections.
Show clients on my desktop Select to run clients in separate windows like operating system applications. This is sometimes referred to as "multiple window" mode.
On last client Specify what action should happen when the last client is closed. For X Client sessions, this action occurs after the amount of time specified by Delay (secs). For XDMCP connections, this action occurs immediately when you log out.
Reset session - Reset the session. Resetting returns the server to the same state it had before clients used the session.
Stop session - Close the session.
Stop session and exit X Manager - Close the session. If this is the last running session, also exit X Manager.
Do nothing - Continue running the session without a reset. This is useful for applications that expect your environment to remain unchanged.
Delay (secs) Specify the number of seconds of inactivity that must pass before the session is reset or stopped. If a client connects during this interval, the Reset session or Stop session setting is ignored. This setting applies X Client definitions, not XDMCP connections.
Note: This option does not apply if the session is running an XDMCP desktop. When you log off of the desktop, the On last client action occurs immediately (no timeout).
Automatically start session Automatically start this session when X Manager starts.
Disable sharing Disables sharing for X clients and XDMCP connections that use this session.
Limit number of session instances to Sets a maximum limit on the number of instances of this session that can be launched by a user. This does not limit the number of clients that can run using the same session instance. It does not affect how many instances of other session types can run.
Note: In domain mode, all sessions for any given user are known to the domain, and the domain enforces the limit per user. A user cannot log in to multiple instances of X Manager for Domains and start the specified number of session instances on each X Manager for Domains.

Remote Session Services

The Remote Session Services feature is available if you have installed support for running Reflection X session components on other computers. The options available to you depend on whether you are running in standalone or domain mode. For details, see:
