3 or 4 Monitors

What does it take to get 3 or 4 monitors connected to a view desktop?   hav eit setup in View to max out at 3 but yet my desktops will not allow a third.  Under Eddit Settings on the VM it says Max Monitors 3 butyet the desktop won't show a third.  Does the VM need to be recomposed??  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

What does it say on the pool settings in the View admin console?

It just says what display protocol and that's it.  However when I go in to edit the setting I have it set for maximum of 3 monitors.  That same setting shows up under Edit Setting on the VM as well wehn i look at video adapter.

What type of client and OS are you running?

Does your client see 3 different monitors?  (No splitters or similar)

Could you post the logfile from your client?

apparently my desktop is unable to support 3 monitors and that is the issue.  Looks to me like it supports it but after talking with Dell that is the case.  Sorry for the Post.  Should have looked at that first i guess.
