C:\>vdmadmin -Q -clientauth -add -domain TESTDM -clientid 00:1f:3c:18:ef:42
Error: Failed to perform clientauth operation (the specified domain does not exist or can't contact。)
the domain i specified is the same as i see in the view client connection dialog.
i execute this command in my only connection server
Have you checked out this whitepaper, http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/VMware-View-KioskMode-WP-EN.pdf? In the exsample commands the client ID is specified before the domain, not sure if that matters or not. Is the connection broker in question on that domain and have DNS setup correctly?
Run the vdmadmin command from C:\Program Files\VMware\Vmware View\Broker\bin\
Since you are trying to create a clientauth authentication user on the domain controller you need domain administrator privileges.
Therefore you should launch the command prompt using the domain admin previleages)
In the same command prompt are you able to perform below operations:
Are you able to add a custom-user as a clientid
#vdmadmin -Q -clientauth -add -domain yourdomain -clientid custom-kioskuser
Is adding the default OU and group working for you
#vdmadmin –Q –clientauth –setdefaults –group kiosk-group –ou OU=my-ou,dc=com
Are you able to list the configuration?
#vdmadmin -Q -clientauth -list
Hopefully the above steps would help you.
