    hy guys
    im playing with V10L (6.5.0.30) and View 4 with Vista VMs.
    My problem is: its ok to log on View broker and my default VM entitled to that user starts but then i cannot autologin on windows and a user login always appears.

    Is this a way to let the user authenticathe through VIEW broker and then AUTOMATICALLY on the VM?

    Many thanks in advance

    My wnos.ini is

    Why not just have the user log into the terminal login box and it pass it through to Windows?

    My wnos.ini file is thus:

    Autoload=1
    Enablelocal=no
    TCXLicense=********
    Timeserver=time.nist.gov Timeformat=”12-hour format” Dateformat=mm/dd/yyyy
    TimeZone=’GMT – 05:00′ ManualOverride=yes Daylight=yes Start=030207 End=110107 TimeZoneName=”US Eastern Standard Time” DayLightName=”US Eastern Daylight Time”
    VDIBroker=https://view_server
    Resolution=1280×1024 Refresh=60
    DesktopColorDepth=32
    NoticeFile = legal
    formurl=”wyselogo.jpg”

    The legal and wyselogo.jpg files are just branded information for my company.

    I’ve never tested with Vista, but it works with XP. The user goes to any Wyse V10L and its at a login box that has my company name on it. They login and View directs them to their VM automatically. No additional login.

    its exacly like it should be here.
    But i cannot reach it. The V10L boots, the Vmware view login screen appears. Username and pwd and automatically it begins to load the rdp connection to the entitled VM.
    And a login screen (windows vista one) appears. My user is forced to click CHANGE user and re-type username e pwd

    Thank you

    I’m going to build a Vista VM and test it. I’ll get back to you after I do. Which version of Vista?

    waiting for your contribution i tried the same with a Xp pool….autologin is working as expected.

    I wonder why it doesnt work with Vista or Win 7

    I have it running in my lab with Win7 without any issue.
    When the 10L boots and presents the login screen, is the domain field already filled or do you have to enter the domain manually.
    If latter is true then the client is not connecting to the connection broker. Check the WTOS Eventlog to prove.

    Hi ConfGen,
    im sure im doing something wrong; i’m happy to hear for you that win7 is working.

    When i log to the broker i have my domain correctly displayed.

    I really dont know why this happens only with Vista/Seven

    update: i just tried Vmware view client on my pc….same beahviour. I think its something configured on the parent Vm and not a Wyse issue.
    Confgen did u configure something special on the Win 7 VM?

    No, all I have done is to install W7, then VMware Tools and lastly VMware View Agent.
    The only specialty is that I am not using VC. I have installed the View agent with
    agent-installer.exe /V”VDM_VC_MANAGED_Agent=0″
    and then added the desktop as an individual desktop via “Other Sources” to a pool (there is only this machine in the pool).

    I have mine working fine with Vista Business.

    However, I am not using the View Client on the terminal. I am using the View Agent only on the VM.

    I don’t have anything special configured.

    V10L points to the View 4 server via DHCP/FTP wnos.ini file.
    The VM has the View 4 Agent installed.

    I added the VM as an individual desktop in View Manager and entitled it to the user.

    That’s it. They login on a Wyse login screen (which I have branded with my company name) and the credentials pass through to windows.
