I'm a freelancer that accesses my client's work environment using a virtual machine setup using VMware Horizon Client which is set up locally on my side (obviously).
I've got all the log files and various .dmp files and I now need to see at what times I logged into their environment. So I have three questions:
1) what is the most appropriate log file or .dmp file to check when I used Horizon client to their client server? Ideally I would also like to capture when I've had to re-enter my credentials after the Horizon Client security times out (and forces me to CTRL_ALT_DEL)
2) What's the best way to open the .dmp files?
3) How far do these log files go? Ideally I'd need them to go back 6months.
1) It's not easy to understand the log. You can check the Client UI log first: vmware-horizon-viewclient-YYYY-MM-DD-XXXXXX.txt. Get more information here: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Horizon/2203/horizon-console-administration/GUID-3127B73A-B6DB-44F...
2) See the doc from Microsoft: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/troubleshoot/windows-client/performance/read-small-memory-dump-file
3) Set the GPO via vdm_common.admx
- Maximum number of debug logs: Specifies the maximum number of debug log files to retain on the system.
- Number of days to keep production logs: Specifies the number of days for which log files are retained on the system.
