Suspend and Resume with X Manager for Domains

If you are running X Manager for Domains, you can configure sessions that support the ability to leave the session without actually terminating the connection with the X client application. After you leave a session, the display closes, but the session is persisted in memory on a domain node. When you join the session, you see your client display as you left it — there's no need to restart your client application or start a new session.

To leave a session without stopping the session or the client

  1. Configure a Reflection X domain with at least one domain node.

  2. Configure a session definition to support suspend and resume. (On the General tab, under Remote session services, select any of the options that include Session suspend/resume.)

  3. Configure your client to use this session and start the client.

    Under the session definition, you should see a running session appear. The host shown for this session will be one of the domain nodes.

  4. To leave the session, select the running session and click the leave icon , or right-click the session and click Leave. The running session icon changes to show that the session is now suspended. You can close X Manager for Domains at this point and the session will remain active and suspended on the domain node.

To rejoin the suspended session

  1. Log into the Reflection X domain from any computer with X Manager for Domains running that has access to the domain controller. This can be the same computer from which you suspended the session or a different computer. You should see your running, suspended session.

  2. To rejoin the session, select the suspended session click the join icon , or right-click the session and click Join. The client display reopens as you left it.
