Linux Multiuser on Physical Server

Jump to solution

Hullo,

can I user the linux agent on a physical server to create a multiuser desktop pool?

BTW, is the the correct syntax for installing in multiuser mode this one if you have a stand alone VM/server?

./install_viewagent.sh -A yes -M no -b connection-server.fqdn -u adajoinuser -d domain -n machinename  -k domain-controller.fqdn --multiple-session

Thanks

Cristiano

We don't official announcement to support physical server, but I think it is ok to use the multiple-session desktop with unmanaged mode in physucal server. Your install command is right.

./install_viewagent.sh -A yes -M no -b connection-server.fqdn -u adajoinuser -d domain -n machinename  -k domain-controller.fqdn --multiple-session

Hello @songkai and @zhiminli,

Is the same installation string still valid? In this case the issue is with a Linux VM, that I want to use as RDS server.

the documentation states that I should use this command to install the agent:

https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Horizon/2111/linux-desktops-setup/GUID-8E062237-7A66-4F12-9C9D-F4E...

sudo ./install_viewagent.sh --multiple-session -M no

but the installation fails with this error:

Horizon Connection Server not specified

and it's quite obvious, how should the agent installer know about the connection server?

It's your documentation correct? I also opend a SR since a week, and I was told it works in the lab for them 😳

The documentation for multisession I feel is incomplete, the string above should work, you can find all the options here: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Horizon/2111/linux-desktops-setup/GUID-09A3F97C-47FE-4ABF-B68C-E42...
