FSLogix Office 365 Container Details Test

FSLogix Office 365 Container redirects only areas of a user’s profile that are specific to Microsoft Office and is a subset of Profile Container. The Container can optionally be used in conjunction with Profile Container, to store Office Data in a location separate from the rest of the user's profile. The Container enables and enhances the Microsoft Office experience of users in non-persistent environments. In non-persistent environments, the index catalog doesn’t roam with user data and must be rebuilt every time the user signs into a new host, which could potentially occur at every sign-on and could create a significant delay in fetching the desired data. When FSLogix Office 365 Container feature is enabled on the target Virtual App server, the Container redirects user’s Outlook data as well as search index catalog, giving users access to their emails and other Outlook data while enabling users to search in Outlook – even when they roam between sessions on different hosts in a typical Virtual App environment. The Container roams the search index on a per-user basis inside the user’s profile container; there is no need to re-index a user’s Outlook OST regardless of which the Virtual App server they access.

If user's experience with Microsoft Office on the target server that is enabled with FSLogix Office 365 Container is poor, then administrators should be able to quickly figure out if the quality of the UX suffers due to unavailability of the services offered by the FSLogix Office 365 Container. The FSLogix Office 365 Container Details test helps administrators in this regard.

For each user connecting to a FSLogix Office 365 Container-enabled Virtual App server, this test reports whether the Container is enabled/properly attached and the services offered from the Container are enabled. This way, users who are experiencing a poor Microsoft Office experience can be isolated and the reason for the same can be ascertained. In addition, the test points administrators to users whose experience suffer due to inadequate disk space.

Target of the test : A Citrix Virtual Apps server

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each combination of domain:user on the target Citrix Virtual App server to be monitored.

Parameters Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The host for which the test is to be configured.

Port

Refers to the port used by the Citrix Virtual Apps server .

Report By Domain Name

By default, this flag is set to Yes. This implies that by default, the detailed diagnosis of this test will display the domainname\username of each user who accessed an application on the server. This way, administrators will be able to quickly determine which user logged into the server from which domain. If you want the detailed diagnosis to display only the username of these users, set this flag to No.

DD Frequency

Refers to the frequency with which detailed diagnosis measures are to be generated for this test. The default is 1:1. This indicates that, by default, detailed measures will be generated every time this test runs, and also every time the test detects a problem. You can modify this frequency, if you so desire. Also, if you intend to disable the detailed diagnosis capability for this test, you can do so by specifying none against DD frequency.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
