Dear Fellow Testers

I'm in the process of setting up a test environment where i have one W7-VDI and the LoginVSI Server in the same Network and Domain, but the launcher comming from another Network, not in the same Domain, connecting via Citrix Netscaler Gateway. I don't have name resolution of the VDI Environment when connecting to the loginvsi/VDI-network so i use host files for the loginvsi Server and DDC.

The Firewall from the "lanucher-Network" to the "VDI/LoginVSI-Network" has an any roule.
I figured out how to launch a session using the Citrix Connection Powershell Script.

So i created a new Test and try to run it.

Everything is fine at the beginning.
1. The Session Monitor is "running"
2. the launcher Agent is started is "ready" (Launcher Path: \\\Loginvsi\...\\)
3. When i hit finish i see the launcher starting up the ica Session connecting sucessfully to the Desktop.

After that i get an error on the loginvsi server see Attachement.

Hello Dave,

My apologies for the late response.

If i am correct everything works fine but this error pops up at the Management Console? The reason behind it is because the Management Console tries to resolve the hostname of the launcher. If it cant find this (probably due to the multi domain setup) it will timeout and show this error message. It does not harm your environment or test and our development team has been notified.

To avoid this issue you can download our hotfix here: upload.loginvsi.com/Support/April15/Hotfix49.zip . Let us know the results!

Again apologies for the late response.

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."

Sajad Shah, Senior Technical Analyst at Cancer Research UK
