  • vm customization using VDI

    Hi,

    We are using Windows Server 2012 , Hyper V and RDS Roles are installed...Now I have recently create 2 new vm using Virtual Desktop Session host option inside Remoter Desktop Services role.

    Now , My question is , I want to install 2 new software and want to get it updated on this 2 new VDI , I created recently. So , Is it possible using VDI Upgrade process such as Citrix Xen Desktop .

    Or Do i need to create totally new VDI Everytime , when i am installing and removing any software on Master Image.

    Thanks..

      a) Just because something is in Citrix, it doesn't mean it has to be in Microsoft
      b) Please do NOT bounce your posts - you have been a member long enough to know that is against the rules
      c) Why don't you tell us what you have actually DONE to try to solve the problem instead of asking us to do your research for you

      Personally, given your many recent posts, I would recommend passing all your problems onto a competent network administrator or a consultant

        Hi ,

        Do I need to create VDI a new machine when every time if I want to install additional software in master image or is it possible to update it master image and it can be push inside the existing vdi systems ...

        I search on google but I found no information on this

            Pushing out additional applications to VDI will depend on the type of applications such as whether they are accessed via a website, local install, virtual and so on. For VDI workstations including RDSH, we tend to push out software that requires a local install via SCCM. This reduces the size of the Gold image template (Master Image). For the Gold image template, we would inject Microsoft and Windows updates into it offline but doesn't necessarily need to be done as SCCM would handle this anyway. You do have the choice to install software to the Gold image template and make other changes and then re-deploy VDI workstations. Whether you can depends on whether you roam user profiles and redirect folders and whether they could lose other customisations.

            So in your case, you can update the master image as in the template used to deploy from and then would have to re-deploy otherwise, rollout the software via another method; Group Policy, SCCM, VDI solution features etc.
