We have a licensed Login VSI setup with VMware Horizon View, which we have been using it for last one year with out any issues.
We have been using 1510 Windows 7 as desktops and using LoginVSI to generate load on them. We pretty much use this environment almost every week.

All of a sudden, we see a lot of session error messages, and also not all the active sessions are logging out.

We are seeing more than 300 of the following sessions error messages,
2015-07-12 20:24:43,Starting VSIWarning routine
2015-07-12 20:24:43,AELookupSvc is not running, this might cause isses and is not recommended: support.microsoft.com/kb/902196 [/b]

Appreciate any direction to troubleshoot this issue .

Hello Sir,

The AELookupSvc can safely be ignored when using anything else than Windows XP. Since you are using Windows 7 this is simply a warning and can be ignored. However the issues with the sessions not logging out can be a problem. Did you see within the session what is blocking them? Might it be that its stating that applications are blocking logoff, since this is a common issue. This can be resolved by going to the "Management Console > Workload > Settings" tab and change the value at "Logoff Action" change to "shutdown /l /f".

Let me know if this changes anything, in my experience the sessions should not fail to logoff when AELookupSvc is not enabled.

We were not seeing these session error messages for last one year and all of a sudden started seeing them during the test.
In addition to that,
We have 1510 launched sessions and 1510 active sessions, but after 2880 + 120 seconds, we don't see all those sessions logging off, the way it used to be...
When I looked at few of the launchers on the active sessions.....we saw the session was sitting at the Print wizard like the one I have attached..

"You would be somewhat nuts to go to production with VDI without first and constantly re-evaluating with Login VSI. Always run all your changes through it so there are no surprises. Surprises in VDI never just hit one or two users--it's all or nothing.”

Michael Cooper - Citrix

"We use Login VSI as a level set. If we are looking at a system that we are putting on brand new hardware or that we are putting in the cloud, we may see those environments completely differently but the end result is: is the user going to have a good solid happy user experience? And what Login VSI provides us on all three platforms is fairly consistent apples-to-apples comparison: is the user happy?"
