We are currently running about 100 desktops in a View 4.5 dynamic pool setting with the Samsung NC240 monitor to connect. I have noticed an issue in all of our XP SP3 VMs which I have yet to find a resolution to. Whenever a user visits a website with embedded flash content, the screen will flash for a second. When it corrects itself, the windows of most any opened application will be rearranged, usually minimized down. I have attached a few screen shots for reference. This seems to happen whether I connect to a session through the Samsun monitor, or from a regular XP box running the View client. I'm just curious if anyone has seen this type of behavior, or has any clue as to what might cause it.
Can you test the same thing using an RDP connection? Just to check if this is VM-related or not.
Thanks for the response. This seems only to be a PCOIP issue. When connecting via RDP, I do not encounter this behavior.
I agree with JLogan, this is only a PCOIP issue. Because when I connect via RDP, iI have no problem so far. No signs of unusual behavior
I had hoped an upgrade to View 5 would resolve this issue, but it does not seem to have helped.
As a test, I went to a site I know will cause the windows to resize (Youtube), let it do its thing, and then saved that profile as the default user. Now, when a new user logs in and hits a site with embedded video, their windows no longer resize. However, instead of the screen going black for a few seconds only the first time, it does this every time.
Still curious if anyone else is seeing this through a PCOIP session. I also see this if I go into the vSphere client and console to one of the machines, which is very strange.
