after a successful migration and upgrade of our Horizon View environment, we will be rolling out the Horizon View Client v8.5 for Windows remotely. First tests worked well.
But now both the former connection server and the new connection server are displayed in the client start view.
Is there a way to remotely delete the old server from the Horizon View Client?
You can use a GPO, a script, or any other method to remove the appropriate registry key.
On your windows computers you should have two registry keys, one for each server.
delete the one you don't need (SERVERURL)
For 32-bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client\
For 64-bit Windows: HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client\
You should have two keys in the registry. (delete the one you don't need)
apsrv016vsn or apsrv005vsn
But In a future version of Horizon Client, Windows registry settings might not be supported and group policy settings must be used.
If you dont have this reg keys, another option is force the CS by GPO to only one server.
|Server URL||Specifies the URL that Horizon Client uses during login, for example, https://view1.example.com.|
Hope it helps
at HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client\ there is no value 'ServerURL'.
But there is value 'MRBroker' with content 'apSRV016vsn'.
There is no indication of the deprecated broker 'apSRV005vsn' in the entire registry.
I'll take a closer look at the 'Settings for Client GPOs' in the 'Using Group Policy Settings to Configure Horizon Client' link you recommended.
Thank you for the detailed help.
