  • VDI instance of Winxp

    Hi Friends,

    I need your help to configure the VDI setup. Here is the requirement.

    Is it possible to create a single instance of Windows XP OS so that multiple users through RDP could access it simultaneously. I don't want to proivde seperate image of Win Xp to every users.

    I have ESX 5 and 1 windows xp guest machine under it. Now i want to allow my 10 domain users to connect this guest machine throgh RDP. I know Win XP only allow single user at a time, but can we create any shared virtual instance of Win Xp and allow my users to connect simultaneously.

    Please advice if this is possible and what is required for this setup.

      You are going to need VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop or Quest vWorkspace for example to create an provision desktops.
