What is your Windows 10 display driver configured as? What does MDT configure it with, and is it getting changed after the fact?
Thanks for your answer, no display driver installed through MDT....just VMware Tools with the VMware SVGA driver
And nothing changes there...
Still no luck,
Did a complete new deployment with:
- a new VM as basis for the entire deployment with newest VM hardware, VMware Tools etc
- Dedicated pool
When I start the gold image, I can reboot as many times I want, it works fine, when I do a recompose, 1st time works fine, after reboot...black screen
And when trying to connect though the Horizon Client:
Are you refreshing or deleting or doing nothing, after logoffs?
Also, please reference this as it is similar to what we experienced one time after a recompose:
Essentially, this article tells you to shutdown the VM from the console window instead of the Start > Shutdown menu. Check out the articles.
If the userinit registry value is corrupted, this can happen, I've seen it on RDSH hosts. I've thought about using a deployment tool for creating these images, but for me at least doing them from scratch both lets me know the the complete process, and I can manually check these keys. Almost always this key is not in the correct format after installing all the agents I need.
What version of VMWare tools do you have installed on the parent image?
Were VMWare tools installed before Horizon Agent?
Are you using linked clones?
What antivirus is installed on the parent VM?
Are you using persona management or UEM?
What hardware version is your parent VM?
Do you have "Wait for the network" GPO set?
Are you using Blast or PCoIP?
What client are you using to connect? Is it 4.8 or newer?
Is screen DMA enabled or disabled?
Next time you get a black screen, put your VM in maintenance mode in View Admin so it does not refresh if you reboot it.
To collect Agent logs remotely from the Connection Server, run this command in a command prompt
vdmadmin -A -getDCT -outfile file_name.zip -d pool_name -m virtual_machine_name
By default, the vdmadmin utility is located at C:\Program Files\VMware\Vmware View\Server\tools\bin in the Connection Server.
May want to open a case with VMware and have them review the logs
While you black screen VM is in maintenance mode check your event logs App / System / Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy/Operational
Search for event id 6005 see what happened before it
What log on scripts do you have for your VDI environment?
