VMware Horizon View 4.10 fails to connect

Dear all Issue Had some Issues with a customer connecting to an old (5.x) Horizon View environment with my 4.10 Agent (MAC). Client connects but immediately after connecting I got a black screen and a disconnection message.   Resolution This is because of a change / disable TLS 1.0 version. So just use the 4.9 client or tell your customer to update 🙂   Download You can download it here: https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=CART19FQ3_WIN_490&productId=578&rPId=25728    Regards and Happy New Year!

VMware View Agent for VMs not in vCenter

Hi all Requireent If you have to install the VMware Horizon View Agent outside a VM (or a phyiscal PC) not managed in vCenter you have to use the following command:   Soution in VMware Agent VMware-viewagent-Y.Y.Y0-xxxxxx.exe /v”VDM_VC_MANAGED_AGENT=0″ If you then create a manual desktop pool in the VMware Horizon View Admin you will see the desktop listed in “Other” sources. Hope this helps other out there in the jungle 🙂
