Configuring the XenDesktop logging

Any operation performed on a system, automatic or manually executed by the users, should be registered in a log file in order to troubleshoot problems and to be able to reconstruct the activities for any kind of reason, for instance, in case of security or legal checks. In this recipe, we will discuss about the main logging activities performed by the Citrix XenDesktop machines and the way to implement them.
