Installation Cortex XDR Agent 7.7.1 on Windows Terminal Server

L4 Transporter

Hello dear Community, 


with our CSP we had some discussions about the installation on a Windows Terminal Server (Round Robin). 

Do we have to use the TS_ENABLED=1 flag to install the cortex agent on the Terminal Server? TS means hier temporary session and not Terminal Server. But has Terminal Server a temporary session?

Hi @RFeyertag To answer your question: how long does a terminal server session last? Is it persistent across reboots like a regular Windows 10 endpoint? If so, please install as a standard installation.

On the other hand, if the sessions are not persistent, like VDI's or Temporary Sessions, you can install as a VDI or Temporary Session instance on those endpoints. You can see the explanation of the differences here.

In our case the sessions are lost, when we reboot the RDP-Server. 

The session only persits, when the employee disconnects its RDP-Session.

But all the changes in the logged out and OS restartet sessions are persistent.  

A user can have X sessions with the same user, without disconnecting the other sessions. 

Sorry, my knowledge about Terminalserver needs improvement.
