    ThinApp Packages not Detected by Workspace

    airfrog7 Novice

      I have a VMware Horizon View 6 Proof of Concept environment. I have configured ThinApp within View and added some packaged apps. I have assigned these ThinApps to a desktop pool and they are successfully pushed out to the virtual desktops when users login. So from that point of view I am happy the ThinApps are working OK.

       

      However, I have just installed Workspace 2.1 and it is not detecting the ThinApp packages. I have enabled View Pools within Workspace and it detects my desktop pools OK. I have also enabled ThinApp packaged applications and pointed it at my ThinApp file share. However, every time I try and manually sync (or the automatic sync runs) from within Workspace I get the following error:

      Push is scheduled to take place:

      Every day at 11:55 pm

      Error occurred in Packaged applications (ThinApp) sync. Please check if Packaged applications (ThinApp) configuration is correct and the share path is reachable.

       

      The /var/log/messages log on the virtual appliance contains this:

      2015-01-08T09:54:14+00:00 XXXXXwork01 ThinAppRepoService: t@349c7700: Starting import cycle from share (\\XXXXXview01.viewtest.internal\ThinApp\).

      2015-01-08T09:54:14+00:00 XXXXXwork01 ThinAppRepoService: t@349c7700: Mount path [\\XXXXXview01.viewtest.internal\ThinApp\] is CIFS, acquiring credentials.

      2015-01-08T09:54:14+00:00 XXXXXwork01 ThinAppRepoService: t@349c7700: Initializing application share discovery

      2015-01-08T09:54:14+00:00 XXXXXwork01 ThinAppRepoService: t@349c7700: Initialization of Application share discovery was successful

      2015-01-08T09:54:14+00:00 XXXXXwork01 ThinAppRepoService: t@349c7700: Ending import cycle (0 app scanned, 0 app processed).

       

      So Workspace is successfully connecting to the Share but cannot detect any of the ThinApp packages. I have tried rebuilding one of the ThinApp packages with the "Manage with VMware Workspace" option ticked, but the package still isn't detected. The permissions on the file share and the packages look correct.

       

      What do I need to do to get Workspace to detect the ThinApp packages?
