    View 7.4 RDS farm and user assignment

    malefik Enthusiast



      We use Vmware View 7.4

      I created an RDS farm from several Windows 2012R2 servers (linked clones), but the "user assignment" is only floating. This is bad, because every time the user logs on to different virtual servers. This is a problem for example, the Windows Search service.

      How to link a user to a specific server?


      Tnx for help!

          What you are looking for is dedicated user assignment which is only available to desktop pools with full/linked/instant clones. For RDS farms the only option is floating.


          It sounds like what you really need is a tool to manage and move the users profile/settings with them as they move between desktops.


          VMware includes Persona Management with all versions of Horizon but it's not available for RDS pools. If you have Horizon Enterprise you can use User Environment Manager (UEM). Alternatively there is Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity or Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V).
