To view and configure common Site settings in the RAS Console, navigate to Farm > <Site> > Settings.
The Auditing tab allows you to configure application auditing. When enabled, application auditing monitors processes running in the Site and records this information in the audit file. To view the information, click the View Audit button (at the bottom of the page). The information is also displayed on the Information > Site page and in RAS Reports.
To enable or disable application auditing, use the Auditing drop-down list (at the bottom of the page). The Clear Audit File button clears the current audit.
The Filtering the following processes list allows you to specify processes that will be excluded from the audit. Use the Tasks drop-down list to add or delete a process. You can also use the Task menu to import and export a process list from/to a CSV file. The Task > Properties menu item allows you to edit a process name. The Default menu item resets the list to contain the default set of standard processes.
The Global logging tab allows you to specify the log level for Parallels RAS components. Logs are used by Parallels RAS support engineers to analyze possible issues with a Parallels RAS installation. To specify the log level, select one or more servers in the list and click the Configure Logging item. In the dialog that opens, select one of the following:
- Standard — This is the standard log level that records only the most important events. Unless you are asked by Parallels RAS support to use one of the log levels described below, you should always use this one.
- Extended — This logging involves more information than the standard logging, but it slows down the system because of the additional information that it needs to collect.
- Verbose — Verbose logging involves even more information than the extended logging and can slow down your system significantly.
Please note that to avoid degraded performance, extended and verbose logging should only be enabled for a limited time period (enough to collect the necessary information for analysis). You can set this time period using Reset to the standard level after option. The default value is 12 hours. In specific cases, a Parallels support engineer will advise you whether this time period should be set to a different value. Once this time period is over, the log level will be reset back to standard.
To retrieve a ZIP archive containing the collected log files, click the Retrieve item and then specify a location where you want the file to be saved. The Clear item clears all logs.
You can also set the log level for an individual server by navigating to the page where servers of that type are listed (e.g. RD Session hosts, Gateways, etc) and clicking Tasks (or right-click) > Troubleshooting > Logging. The context menu that opens has the same Configure, Retrieve, and Clear options as described above. The Log Level column in the server list indicates the currently set level.
The URL redirection tab allows you to create redirection rules that specify URLs which will be redirected when the Allow Client URL/Mail redirection option is enabled for an RD Session Host, virtual machine, or Remote PC (Agent Settings tab in the corresponding server properties). You can also deny redirection of specific URLs. A URL either will be opened on the client side if redirection is allowed or on the remote session host if redirection is denied.
Note the following about redirection rules:
- Redirection rules apply from top to bottom.
- Only the first rule that match the URL applies.
- A URL will be redirected if any part of it matches a rule. For example, https://www.parallels.com, www.parallels.com, remoteapplicationserver, and www.parallels.com/remoteapplication are all valid rules for redirecting https://www.parallels.com/remoteapplicationserver.
To add a redirection rule:
- Configure Parallels Client on your client devices to allow URL redirection.
- For certain applications, you need to enable URL redirection on your RD Session Host, , or Remote PC (see the Agent Settings tab in the corresponding server properties).
- (RD Session Hosts only) For certain applications, you need to enable the Replace registered applications option on the server where the application is published. To do this, go to Farm > RD Session hosts > right-click on your RD Session host > Properties > Agent Settings > Configure.
- In the RAS Console, navigate to Farm > Settings.
- Select the URL redirection tab.
- Click Tasks > Add (or click the [+] icon).
- In the URL field, specify the URL that must be redirected.
- In the Action drop-down list, select Redirect or Do not redirect.
- Click OK.
- Click Apply.
