Secure Global Desktop 4.40 Administration Guide > Getting Started > Using Shadowing to Troubleshoot a User's Problem
A user is having difficulty with an application and they want you to troubleshoot their problem.
Use the SGD Administration Console to find the user's session and then shadow it. Shadowing allows the user and a Secure Global Desktop Administrator to see and use the application simultaneously.
Graham Green is working from home today and using Sun StarOffice Impress through SGD to create a Marketing presentation. He is having trouble with the presentation template and has contacted you for help. To fix the problem, you need to shadow Graham's application session.
You are logged in as a Secure Global Desktop Administrator and have the SGD Administration Console running. You know two things about the session you want to shadow: who is running it (Graham Green) and what application is involved (StarOffice Impress ). You can use either of these to locate the session. In this example, we use the person. In the SGD Administration Console the application sessions a user is running are shown on the Application Sessions tab for their user profile object.
The Application Sessions tab shows all the applications that Graham is currently running.
A new window appears on your screen, showing Graham's running StarOffice Impress application.
Both you and Graham can control the mouse pointer and use the application.
Graham sees a dialog box telling him that no-one is currently shadowing the session.
