I have a windows 2016 Remote Desktop Session Host server running as a VM on Hyper-V.
when want to install view agent 7.8 or 7.10 on it as unmanaged RDS server, there is no way to specify the connection server.
Tried to run the installer with /v"VDM_VC_MANAGED_AGENT=0", no luck, still no option.
event tried to install silently with /s /v"/qn VDM_VC_MANAGED_AGENT=0 VDM_SERVER_NAME=xxx VDM_SERVER_USERNAME=xxx VDM_SERVER_PASSWORD=xxx". the installation seems successful but still don't see the RDSH registered in connection server.
Did you already add the RDS Session Host role on the server? Also, ensure both Composer Agent and Instant Clone features are disabled when doing the install. Otherwise you won’t get the option for setting the Connection Server at the next step.
Yes, the session host role is already installed on the server.
there is no composer or instant clone feature option during install.
when click next, it goes directly to install step.
the option to select install RDS mode or desktop mode is not showing up
The installer is specifically saying it doesn’t see the RDS Session Host role, which is why it’s throwing the window that you’re seeing. Can you double-check that the role is installed, rebooted, and properly pointing to a RDS license server?
Edit: Ah, I assume you’re just referencing that window and not actually seeing it. Hmmm, that’s odd.
You only see this page if you deselected both View Composer Agent and Instant Clone Agent features.
Select as answer if this solves or answers your query.!
im facing this issue alot ,and in most of cases there would be one of the below installed :
1- SCCM agent
2- AV agent
3- Desktop management or control agents
4- Security agents
so my advice go and use vanilla windows ,install the agent then go to other agents installations
