    Horizon View 6 - Persona Management - Folder Redirection and Roaming & Synchronization

    HexadecimalJunk Novice

      I'm having a quirky issue with the PMView.  This is what I see:

       

      - Log as test user with Horizon View client (1st time)

      - View Desktop loads Windows, and shows desktop (30-45 seconds)

      (During this step, I see the profile and redirected folders are created correctly)

      - Log off test user

      - Log back in with the same test user (2nd time)

      - View Desktop loads Windows, shows the "Welcome" screen, and then a black screen.

      (During this step, I see the profile repository get "recreated" (i.e., the folders/files get deleted, and then recreated...))

      - After 1-2 minutes later, the desktop shows up

       

      This seems like an odd behavior to me, and it's probably related to how I've created my PMview.

       

      This is what I have:
