Automate logging on to VDI session from physical machine

As per our present VDI setup , all the Users log into physical machines and then connect the VDI session clicking on the icon by entering the login credentials twice in Physical machine and on the VDI session separately .

Is their any option available to set ,which would allow the user to enter the login credential once for both Physical and VDI sessions than entering TWICE for both PHYSICAL and VDI session .

VMware's broker does have single signon support so you should be able to do this in two logins. The first login would be for the physical client and the second would be for the VDM client which should pass your credentials over to the VM. Did you install the SSO gina when performing the agent install?

Single Sign On is available but only if you installed the necassary components. Page 12 of the Admin guide briefly discusses it when going over the agent install. There should also be a couple of threads that reference it if you search the forum for SSO.
