    Article Summary

    The folders view displays managed machines in the organization tree separated by their parent folders. You can use this if you wish to see aggregated measures across machines in the same folder. When you want to see how many user sessions are active in your RDS farm, you can place all the RDS in one folder and look at the "Total Active User Sessions" column for the folder.

    Folders and subfolders are presented in a flat hierarchy, allowing you to see aggregated performance and data for any folder in the organization.

    Folders View Column Reference

    The following columns are available in the Information grid while using the Folders view. For VMware Horizon columns, see VMware Horizon Integration: Columns & Grids Overview.

    Folders View Actions

    Besides browsing, searching, grouping and sorting the data, this view allows you to perform a variety of actions on the selected folders(s).

    These actions are available when selecting a folder or a group of folders. They can be invoked using either the Ribbon Bar “Actions” button, the context menu (right-click), or the Actions Panel.

    Connect

    Contact the ControlUp Agent on all managed machines in the selected folder(s) and start gathering performance data.

    Disconnect

    Close the connection to the ControlUp agent on all managed machines in the selected folder(s).

    Flush DNS

    Clears the DNS client cache (ipconfig /flushdns) on all managed machines in the selected folder(s).

    Send Message

    This action allows administrators to send a plain text message to all the users on all managed machines in the selected folder(s).

    Send Super Message

    This action allows administrators to send an enhanced message to all the users on all managed machines in the selected folder(s).. This action can be useful when conveying an important message to the end users and gathering the users’ feedback (for example when testing a recent software fix). The message can be configured:

    1. To include rich-text formatting and graphics
    2. To close the message automatically when a configured timeout has elapsed
    3. To stay on top of all other user’s windows
    4. To not allow the user to close the message window
    5. To allow the user to respond to the message:
    6. To use pre-configured reply buttons (such as Yes;No or OK;Cancel)
    7. To allow free text replies

    If the user response option is enabled, a window will open displaying all of the users’ feedback gathered by the Super Message.

    Refresh Machine Group Policy

    This action triggers a Group Policy update on all managed machines in the selected folder(s) using Windows built-in gpupdate.exe utility. You can manipulate the “Force” and “Timeout” parameters using the action window.

    Import Registry

    Allows for importing a .reg file to the registry of all managed machines in the selected folder(s).

    Disable process execution

    This action prevents processes with the configured file name from being executed on all managed machines in the selected folder(s). This action can be useful for preventing a program from being run during upgrades or software maintenance.

    You are advised to use extreme caution when preventing process execution, since this action affects all users on all managed machines in the selected folder(s) and the execution block will be enforced until explicitly removed using the “Enable Process Execution” action.

    It is important to provide the end user who might try to run a disabled process with an explanation that will appear on his/her screen. Using the action’s built in text message capability you can provide such explanation.

    Enable Process Execution

    This action cancels the “Disable Process Execution” action on all managed machines in the selected folder(s). You may choose to remove all existing execution blocks previously set on all managed machines or configure a specific process name to be unblocked.

    Run As

    This action allows you to launch a process on all managed machines in the selected folder(s). You can run any executable that is accessible on the managed machine(s). If you use a command-line expression or a batch file, prepend “cmd.exe /c ” to your command.

    Note

    Processes started using this action are executed in session 0 using Local System and are not visible to the users working on the target machine(s). For executing interactive processes, use the “Start Process in Session” action described in the Sessions View chapter.

    Hypervisor Folders View Actions

    Unlike regular ControlUp folders, there are no actions that can be taken on the hypervisor folders themselves except for viewing related incidents in the Incidents database.
