abaxter created the topic: VDI Test fails with floating pool
When attempting to run the Create Profile test the launcher will start the session but when the target comes up it fails with an error that there is no configuration for the machine. I am using a floating pool with out persistent disks so I never know what machine any given user will log into. Any help with getting this working is greatly appreciated.

This problem has been resolved, there were two issues:

1, The target environment also had the VSI launcher installed. The message regarding the configuration comes from the launcher not being able to find launcher configuration in the current test for the specific launcher.
Solution: Do NOT install the VSI launcher on your target environment.

2, The VSI target installation was incomplete. Part of the VSI target installation is a file copy to %programfiles%\login consultants\VSI. This copy action will fail when the installation is not ran as an administrator. When the file copy fails VSI will not start as there is nothing to start since the VSI executable hasn't been copied.
Solution: Run the VSI target setup as administrator.

“Predictability is a key piece to VDI. It’s one of reasons that VDI has scared people away, but Login VSI solves that. If you’re going to do it, do it right. Login VSI really gives that rubber stamp on doing it right.”

Randy Groves - Teradici

"As the developer of the PCoIP protocol, we do a lot of our own internal benchmarking to make sure that we’re continuing to improve our protocol. But we can’t actually publish our internal benchmarks because everybody might think that the tests are biased. So when we want to publish results, we use Login VSI. That way, if a customer wants to repeat our results they can.”

Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici

Sajad Shah - Cancer Research

"Login VSI has empowered us to make more informed decisions on releasing a new vDisk which we now do on a monthly basis. We have found that Login VSI tests can also flag other issues in our environment that may not be picked up by our standard User Testing which allows us to either make the appropriate changes to the vDisk or workload script adjustments to run successful tests. This has given us peace of mind and allows us to release VDI’s with confidence."
