5.1.1 agents

Has any one had an issue with 5.1.1 agents on a windows7 pro os?

All the usual installed apps.

Coming from a 4.6 enviorment we only upgraded pc1-10 to the latest agent and those connect then drop with in seconds then reconnect.

I have tested this with the View client and samsung zero clients.

Our 4.6 agents on the same desktops connect just fine.

There is a thread about uninstalling flash

my testings...

esxi 5.1 standard

view premier 5.1.x

our desktops are still hw7

view connection server 5.1.1

agent 4.6 and 4.6.1 connects fine

agent 5.0 connects fine

going to try 5.1.0

does not work 5.1.1

Are you using View 5.1.1, vCenter 5.1.0a, and ESXi 5.1.0a?

Just making sure you are using the proper versions.

You might consider upgrading vCenter to the latest, but that doesn't sound like it will fix your issue.   But I would Upgrade VMware Tools / Machine hardware version since you said you are still using the old hardware version.

We have experienced problems with 5.1.1 agent on machines running hardware version 7. Upgrading to hardware version 8, solved it for us.

upgraded to 5.1.2 seemed to solve the issue I was facing.

now 5.2 is out.
