I’m using AV 2.14. Considering the AV Provisioning Machine should closely resemble the Master Image VM and if you have apps installed on the master you should install them on the Pro Machine, can I just clone the Master VM? I would think I could use the clone as the Provisioning Machine. Would this be a good idea? I’m also following the “Creating an optimized Windows image for a VMWare Horizon Virtual Desktop”
Well it is in the official best practices for this kind of machine
The provisioning system should not have antivirus agents, VMware Horizon with View agent, or any other filter driver applications installed or enabled.
At the end of the day I think it will still work as the entire VMWare folder is being excluded from the appstack (and the writable) but as said by schwarzC it is best practice.. Also, in my experience with GSS they will always ask for this if you have an issue with an appstack.
