This chapter continues from a workstation that will run a live trace on the local machine before being configured to run a trace on a remote server for viewing from an administrator's workstation. You will see how to create and edit a session, including limitations in the types of data sources that can be added to the same session.
- [Instructor] In Microsoft Message Analyzer,…a Session is the collection of Captured Messages…that you are sorting, comparing, and examining…to better understand what's going on in your environment.…The first Session that we'll create will be a Live Trace…or a Capture of what's happening real-time…from the perspective of this workstation.…I'm going to launch the Analyzer…from this icon that I placed on the Start menu…and you may have noticed…that I did not select Run as Administrator.…Since I'm logged into this workstation…with the domain Administrator account…those credentials are covered but if you're logged in…with any other type of user account you will need to select…to run this as an Administrator if you want to do any kind…of Local Trace.…
Now finding the button…to Start a Local Trace is easy enough,…I'm going to select that and then I'm going…to generate some pretty specific network traffic…once this Session is running.…I'm going to open a Command Prompt…and I'm going to ping msn.com…so now that I've generated that very specific traffic…
