Have you ever worked with a Horizon View pool with 10 VM’s and deleted 3 and it recreated as 11? May want to pay attention to learn how you can reuse view desktop names.
I am currently troubleshooting some issues with the Horizon event database having some performance issues. Working with support they pointed me to KB2094580.
Horizon 6.2 is now available and Linux support has improved. Previously it was only supported on a limited set of older operating systems.
Horizon 6.2 Introduced Biometric Authentication, with initial support for TouchID on IOS devices.
I had the opportunity to upgrade my Horizon View environment from 6.1 to 6.2. As always VMware has made this very easy!
So I have had some time to play around with the new Linux Horizon View Agent and using Ubuntu as a VDI guest and it works pretty well. However as most of us have seen, when a user is logged onto the guest the screen is shown in the console. In some organizations this may pose a privacy or security risk.
So Horizon View 6.1.1 was released recently with added support for published applications to finally be accessible via the HTML client. The process is pretty straightforward, however I came across one hiccup I wanted to share.
I was in the process of getting vRealize for Horizon configured, and as I was going through the broker agent configuration for the life of me I couldn’t get the eventdb portion to work. Everytime i entered in the user name and password, I would receive the following error. FAILED (Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 88.)
So I have been working in a few situations where i have wanted to use Horizon 6 published (RDS) applications but having to either launch the Horizon View client within a VDI or have users be forced to logon again has been a deal breaker.
