Server Golden Image with RDS

L3 Networker

Hello, I need your help.

We have a Windows server 2022 with active RDS features and it's a "Golden Image", meaning it serves as the image for 6 other servers.

My question is... the server's purpose is to be an RDS (providing apps), should the Cortex XDR client be installed as VDI or TS?

Please mark the response as "Accept as Solution" if it answers/help your question.

Best regards

Hi Tlmarques


There are two options to use Cortex XDR with golden image technology:

  • Install Cortex agent on master image with MSI property VDI_ENABLED=1
  • Install Cortex agent on each cloned images with MSI property TS_ENABLED=1

We use the first option, as we do not modify cloned images. Works all fine so far.
