    Hello,

     

    Due to some reason, my current Connection Server's IP has to change.

    What is the precaution of changing IP for View Connection server?

    Can I just change IP address without removing view connection program?

     

    Thank you

    Do you have a security server or unified access gateway pointing to this specific view connection server for external access?

    In case there is anyone asking the same question, this is what I got from VMware Support.

     

    This is an expected behavior due to the way how ios devices handles the application. This is due to iOS system restrictions to the life time of a background app which is 3 minutes, ios devices does not allow all the application to run on the background to make sure applications does not consume the power and resources.

    In iOS, only specific app types are allowed to run in the background:

    Apps that play audible content to the user while in the background, such as a music player app
    Apps that record audio content while in the background
    Apps that keep users informed of their location at all times, such as a navigation app
    Apps that support Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
    Apps that need to download and process new content regularly
    Apps that receive regular updates from external accessories
    Users can manage the list of apps that needs to run on the background by modifying at - Settings app > General > Background App Refresh to manage the apps that need to run on the background,

    If you look at the list of Apps, Horizon View client will not be listed in the Background app refresh list since it does fall under one of the app category as listed above, let us know if this answers your query.

     

    So, no luck on getting applications to stay in the background longer than 3 minutes.

    No security server.

    We are using VPN appliance for external access. Of course I reconfigure the VPN appliance IP as the  same as the connection server new IP.

    This was our problem when troubleshooting, thanks Ben. Looks like this product will NOT work with an Airwatch integration. Go figure.

    I had a few reports of IE crashing for some users. I've found this appears to be happening for a lot of VM's. The logs show the following error:
    Faulting application name: IEXPLORE.EXE, version: 11.0.15063.850, time stamp: 0x3173cb3d

    Faulting module name: vmwsci.dll, version: 7.2.0.21950, time stamp: 0x5910b368


    The faulting module (vmwsci.dll) appears it has to do with the View Agent PCoIP Smart Card Interception. Is that the same thing as the Smarcard Redirection feature? We don't even select this for our View Agent installs.  It's happening on various versions of view agent (7.0.3, 7.2).  It does appear these errors started to occur right after the July Windows and Office updates.

    Do you have an image before the July Windows/Office updates to test with?

     

    What antivirus and I/O filter drivers are you using? We've seen a lot of issues like this where antivirus or a I/O filter driver are the culprit.

    I forgot, we did just update Symantec Endpoint Protection earlier this month, which appears to be at version 14.0 RU 1 MP 2.

     

    I'm also seeing a lot of Audit Failures for this file (vmwsci.dll) regarding code Integrity not being valid:

     

    LogName=Security

    SourceName=Microsoft Windows security auditing.

    EventCode=6281

    EventType=0

    Type=Information

    ComputerName= name of vm

    TaskCategory=System Integrity

    OpCode=Info

    RecordNumber=2227863

    Keywords=Audit Failure

    Message=Code Integrity determined that the page hashes of an image file are not valid. The file could be improperly signed without page hashes or corrupt due to unauthorized modification. The invalid hashes could indicate a potential disk device error.

     

    File Name:    \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Windows\System32\vmwsci.dll

    Anyone test the new beta that came out today with 4.8?


    0 0

    Yes, it's still a black screen.

    I'd recommend opening a case with Symantec. We had a similar issue with Carbon Black where it was corrupting files. After the team that managed Carbon Black engaged support they were able to resolve it.

    Can anyone provide step by step guide for How to upgrade Horizon View 7.3.2 standard to latest release Horizon View 7.5.x Enterprise version ?? What is the prerequisites and sequence need to follow during upgrade? Is there any version upgrade path need to follow during upgradation? which components backups and downtime required? etc. 


    0 0

    All Horizon installs are the same and you just need to update your license key to unlock enterprise. You'll want to follow the normal upgrade procedure to get from 7.3.2 to 7.5.0.

     

    Here is the process I follow.

     

    Prerequisites

    1. Verify compatibility of the VMware Components
    2. Verify compatibility with Zero/Thin Clients.
    3. Verify that there are no pending restart on the Connection Servers/Composer Server. Restart the Connection Servers/Composer Server at least once prior to starting the upgrade.
    4. Verify AD LDS replication is healthy.
      1. From each connection server run the following command
        C:\Windows\System32\repadmin.exe /showrepl localhost:389 DC=vdi,DC=vmware,DC=int
        Forcing replication between ADAM databases (1021805)
        View Connection Server fails to replicate (2014488)
        Restart order of the View environment to clear ADLDS (ADAM) synchronization in Horizon View (2068381)
    5. Download the installers and copy them to the server.

    Upgrade process

    1. Verify all of the prerequisites
    2. Verify there are no scheduled or pending tasks.
      1. Use PowerCLI on the connection server to check for tasks. If any exists make sure they will not run during the upgrade.
        Get-DesktopVM -ComposerTask attachUdd,detachUdd,mkChkPoint,rebalance,refresh,replaceUdd,resync | select Name,pool_id,composerTask
    3. Disable provisioning
      1. Wait for all pending tasks to be completed in vCenter (Disk space reclamation, refresh, etc...).
    4. Backup the ADAM/Composer database and snapshot the servers (Performing an end-to-end backup and restore for VMware View Manager (1008046)).
      1. Shutdown the Connection Servers
      2. Shutdown the Composer server
      3. Take a snapshot of the servers
      4. Take a backup of the SQL database
      5. Power on the Composer server. Wait for the server to boot to the login screen before proceeding to the next step.
      6. Power on the Connection Servers one at a time. Wait for the server to boot to the login screen before powering on the next server.
    5. Log back in to Horizon Admin, take a manual backup of the Connection Servers.
    6. Verify AD LDS replication is healthy.
      1. From each connection server run the following command
        C:\Windows\System32\repadmin.exe /showrepl localhost:389 DC=vdi,DC=vmware,DC=int
        Forcing replication between ADAM databases (1021805)
        View Connection Server fails to replicate (2014488)
        Restart order of the View environment to clear ADLDS (ADAM) synchronization in Horizon View (2068381)
    7. Upgrade the Composer Server
      1. Login to the Composer Server
      2. Run the installer
      3. Enter the password for the database connection
      4. Select "Use an existing SSL certificate"
        1. You can check the existing certificate that is being used by the composer server here.
          https://composerserver:18443/
      5. Once the installation completes successfully, restart the server.
    8. Login to the Connection Server
      1. Run the installer
      2. Once the installation completes successfully, restart the server.
      3. Point a client to the Connection Server, verify you can login successfully.
      4. Repeat on additional connection servers.
    9. Verify AD LDS replication is healthy.
      1. From each connection server run the following command
        C:\Windows\System32\repadmin.exe /showrepl localhost:389 DC=vdi,DC=vmware,DC=int
        Forcing replication between ADAM databases (1021805)
        View Connection Server fails to replicate (2014488)
        Restart order of the View environment to clear ADLDS (ADAM) synchronization in Horizon View (2068381)
    10. Wait minimum of 24-48 hours. Purge snapshots of Connection Server and Composer VMs.
    11. Upgrade Horizon Agent

    Hi,

     

    Is there any risk enabling View Storage Accelerator in View Configuration/Servers/vCenter Servers in a production environment?

     

    For some reason this is disabled and we would like to have View Storage Accelerator enabled on the vCenter and control Storage Accelerator on Desktop Pool level. We are not using shared storage but local SSD on the hosts.

     

    The Desktop Pools is not configured with Parent VM and Image/Snapshots so it shouldn't be necessary with Recompose for new Replika image on provisioned machines. The pools are configured to provision from Template, Recompose/Refresh is unavailable in this environment. 

     

    Thanks in advance,

     

    Regards,

    Kenneth

    same set up here, very curious about this.  I enabled it on our dev stuff and didn't see any issues.

    Well there is your answer.


    0 0

    We stopped using View Storage Accelerator several years ago when we moved an all-flash array (The recommendation from our AFA vendor is to disable it). I'm curious if you really need it but you can enable it after the fact. The VMs will need to be powered off for the virtual disk digest to be created. Be careful enabling this as if a user shuts down their machine it can take some time for the virtual disk digest to be created before the VM can be powered back on (I believe this will happen regardless of if a blackout time is configured). If you are concerned make sure to configure blackout times to limit reclaiming disk space and regenerating the digest files from taking place during peak times (We use space reclamation but don't configure any blackout times as our AFA can handle the load).

     

    Configure View Storage Accelerator for vCenter Server

    Configure View Storage Accelerator for View Composer Linked Clones (This covers full virtual machines too)

    Set Storage Accelerator and Space Reclamation Blackout Times for View Composer Linked Clones

    Thanks BenFB,

     

    Yeah, I´m not sure if Storage Accelerator will do any good, but I would like to do a test on a couple of dev Desktop Pools. Firstly, I need to enable it under View Configuration before I enable it on the dev Desktop Pools. To be be absolutely sure, this single operation does not require any downtime on the VM´s?

     

    Thanks in advance!

     

    Regards,

    Kenneth

    Hi there,

     

    I am using View 7.5.1 and Composer 7.5.1 version, I ever found this error message too. I have tried several times to take Backup Now on Inventory > View Configuration > Servers > Connection Servers, that is solved for me. I hopefully work for you too.

     

    Thanks.

    Yohan
