Multiple View sessions, same PC?

View 6.0.1, Client 3.3.0

Can I have multiple View sessions from the same PC? In other words

  • Launch the Horizon View client, login, and access a desktop
  • Launch the Horizon View client again, login as a different user, and access a different desktop
  • Repeat until I have many session open at once

The reason I ask is we are migrating from Exchange to Gmail. Google provides a utility called GAMME that in a larger environment can be run from multiple machines with each machine migrating one portion of the alphabet. Rather than using 10 physical machines I would rather use 10 View desktops. This will work slick if from my real PC I can access all 10 view desktops. I will be using a different login account to access each desktop.

Yes you can do that with the newer clients, but with the older clients you had to use the -standalone switch.

Are you not able to??

Have not tried yet. I did not want to go through the time setting up a separate non-persistent desktop pool if I could not login to more than one desktop at the same time. Now that I know it will work, I will run with it. Thanks for the help
