Booting or Freezing Problem¶
If the client machines do not boot or they freeze while working, it can be caused by a faulty network cable, connection or switch. Try connecting a client directly to the server using a LAN cable and attempt booting the client. If the client boots, it confirms that the client and server both are in working order. Then continue troubleshooting your physical network or contact your network engineer.
In case the client machines still do not boot after trying all above steps, contact the MSS support team.
Top Panel Missing¶
If the top panel does not show up execute the following –
Alt+F2 -> resetpanel
Restore Desktop to Default Settings¶
To restore the desktop to default settings of any user run this in terminal from mssadmin account login once the user has logged out –

Next ask the user to login again.
Users can also try this from a running session -

User will need to log out and back in for changes to apply.
