How are others monitoring their Vmware view / horizon environments for user-id?
I see there is a terminal services agent you can use, (looks like you can only install on windows and citrix) but I haven't found specifics on actually monitoring the vmware view environment/and what permissions that account would need in vmware. Can anyone point me in the right direction for monitoring a vmware view environment for user-id?
There is a vm information sources area, but I'm thinking that that is only for obtaining VM tags for use in security policy and DAG - NOT for user-id user to ip mapping specifically.
The below link talks about it - but doesn't give clear direction on how/what to look at for vdi view environments:
Can you explain how you actually have VMWare Horizon configured within your environment, because there are quite a few different ways you could be using this that would change how you would collect the user information. A lot of the time I see companies simply granting a user entitlement to a vm host and you can continue to pull user-id information directly from Active Directory as you are now. Again though, there are a lot of different ways you can configure Horizon and we need a bit more information on how you've actually got things configured.
Horizon itself though is generally not something I collect information from unless I'm using it as a user-id source or feeding login events in through the API. Generally, people are using it to allow a user access directly to a machine or a TS. You really only need to do things differently if you've enabled ThinApp.
let me check and get back to you on the exact application here. Should have the answer shortly. Thank you for the quick reply!
Turns out the backend is mostly Windows. Terminal services agent it is. Hoping this solves the problem.
