    Article summary

    The following article includes details on issues that you may encounter while working with Remote DX. We provide solutions and workarounds whenever possible.

    Note

    For all Remote DX known issues and bugfixes, see our Release Notes.

    Issue 1: No Remote DX data in Real-Time Console or the Web UI

    From Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (CVAD) release 2109, third-party virtual channels must be explicitly allowed. A policy that controls the allow list was automatically enabled with CVAD 2109. To learn more, see the official Citrix blog article.

    If you don't see Remote DX data in your Real-Time Console or in the web UI, check the Windows Event Log for entries from the rpm source (Citrix):

    Solution

    You must add the process path for the ControlUp Agent retrieving Remote DX data to the virtual channel allowlist. For details, see the Citrix documentation. Use the parameters listed below depending on the CVAD release you use.

    CVAD Releases before 2206

    Add to the virtual channel allowlist for Remote DX to CVAD releases before 2206:

    • Virtual channel name: CUEPUX
    • Process: C:\Program Files\Smart-X\ControlUpAgent\Version #.#.#.#\cuAgentHelper.exe
    • Allow list entry: CUEPUX,C:\Program Files\Smart-X\ControlUpAgent\Version #.#.#.#\cuAgentHelper.exe

    CVAD Release 2206 and higher

    If you use CVAD release 2206 or higher, you can add a wildcard for the version number and use the following parameters when you add to the virtual channel allowlist:

    • Virtual channel name: CUEPUX
    • Process: C:\Program Files\Smart-X\ControlUpAgent\\cuAgentHelper.exe*
    • Allow list entry: CUEPUX,C:\Program Files\Smart-X\ControlUpAgent\*\cuAgentHelper.exe

    If you don't want to add the virtual channel, you can follow the workaround by disabling the virtual channel allowlist policy in CVAD 2109 and higher. Once disabled, restart the VDA to apply the Virtual channel allowlist policy.

    Issue 2: MacOS might not display values correctly when connected via VPN

    When you monitor MacOS, values that are related to the network connection might not be displayed correctly when connected to a VPN. These values include NIC name, NIC speed, Gateway, and others.

    Workaround

    If you want to accurately monitor these values from MacOS, that device should not be connected to your infrastructure via VPN.

    Note

    This issue is currently under investigation, and we are working to provide a complete fix soon.

    Issue 3: For linux sessions, Wi-Fi signal is displayed as 0% instead of N/A

    When using a Linux device such as HP ThinPro, IGEL, Stratodesk or Dell Wyse, the WiFi Signal metrics shows 0% even when no Wi-Fi is turned on.

    A number of metrics are used to calculate the Client Device Score metric, including WiFi Signal.

    Workaround

    To exclude the WiFi Signal metric from the calculation

    1. In the console, go to Settings > Stress and navigate to the folder where your Linux devices reside.
    2. Click the Sessions tab and select WiFi Signal.
    3. Uncheck the checkboxes Inherit.., Yellow, and Red. This ensures that a WiFi signal of 0% does not affect the calculation.

    4. Click Apply to save the settings.

    To fix the issue with the wrong display, we're working on a new release of the Remote DX plugin.

    Issue 4: For VMware Horizon sessions, no data is displayed in the console after a disconnected session is reconnected

    The Real-Time Console does not display data after a user disconnects and reconnects from a Horizon session. This problem doesn't affect logged out sessions.

    If the session is reconnected, you can restart the cuAgent to display data. It is necessary to do this after each reconnection of the session or after the end of the workday.

    This issue is fixed in version 8.8.

    Issue 5: BSOD when Remote DX has not been added to the CVAD virtual channel allow list

    Important

    This issue occurs only on Windows 10 machines running Citrix VDA 2203

    Possible Solutions

    There are two possible solutions to fix this issue:

    1. As the prefered solution, we recommend to add the process path for the ControlUp Agent retrieving Remote DX data to the virtual channel allow list. For details, refer to the Citrix documentation. Use the parameters listed below depending on the CVAD release you are using.

    2. Disable Remote DX by adding the EnableClientMetrics registry key to all VDA devices under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Smart-X\ControlUp\Agent\

    Important

    Using Solution 2 will result in Remote DX metrics not being displayed in the Real-Time DX Console or the web UI.

    Issue 6: No Remote DX data displayed on Windows 10 VDA (Horizon)

    Make sure that all virtual channels are allowed. To do so, use the following registry settings:

    Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\VirtualChannels
    Value: AllowVirtualChannels
    Data Type: REG_SZ
    Value Data: 0

    You can find more information in the official VMware documentation:

    Workaround

    You can manually set the following registry settings on each Horizon VDI by using the Controllers pane in the Real-Time DX Console:

    Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\VirtualChannels
    Value: CUEPUX
    Data Type: REG_SZ
    Value Data: C:\Program Files\Smart-X\ControlUpAgent\Version #.#.#.#\cuAgentHelper.exe

    Replace #.#.#.# with the version of the installed ControlUp Agent.

    Permanent Fix

    Include the registry keys as described above in your VDA golden images or via Group Policy.

    Issue 7: Dell Wyse - No Remote DX data displayed (Citrix)

    When using Citrix Workspace App on a Dell Wyse device, no Remote DX data is displayed when publishing the configuration via the editor in the WMS console.

    Root Cause

    When installing additional packages after the Remote DX package is published, the cuepux configuration is deleted from the module.ini file of Citrix.

    Workaround

    To fix this issue:

    1. First, install the additional packages as needed on your Dell Wyse device.
    2. Follow these steps to Install Remote DX on your device.

    Issue 8: Citrix viewer crashes or displays a gray screen on macOS version 10.x

    This issue occurs because the file \Users\[user]\Library\Application Support\Citrix\Modules is corrupted after installing Remote DX.

    Workaround

    To fix this issue:

    1. Restore the Modules file to the way it was before you installed Remote DX.
    2. Open the Modules file and manually add the entries required for Remote DX. The entries you need to add are shown below.
    ...
    [ICA 3.0]
    VirtualDriver=cuepux, ...
    cuepux=On
    ...
    [cuepux]
    DriverName=cuepux.dll
    ...
    
    1. Save the Modules file.
