For some reason, it takes *forever* for View desktops to come up. Whether I do RDP, PCoIP, or the console it takes 5-10 minutes of a black screen after logging in (it loads fine up until I actually log in) before the desktop comes up.
Has anyone run into this before?
I've tried RDP through my desktop, I've tried the vCenter console and I've tried the View Client on my Windows XP desktop. This is the weird thing:
It only happens when I try logging in with domain credentials. If I log in locally, it works fine.
1) if you do a direct RDP from a computer to the virtual desktop, is it the same?
2) what about DNS hostname resolution? can the view server, desktop, thinclient resolve one another using hostname?
Well there you go. It's got to be something on your network. Maybe its not connecting to the first DNS server correctly. It sounds to me like a logon script/roaming profile issue. I doubt you VM is at fault here.
That sounds like a good plan my Final Fantasy 1 friend. Do this both to the computer and the user you are using to log in.
Figured it out. It was actually UAC - I first thought it was a mapped drive issue, which lead to me looking at the logon script. I tried running the script and it did nothing. Then I tried "run as administrator" and it worked. Once I disabled UAC, I could log on just fine.
