Any tips on hunting down the source of a large number of stuck sessions in 4.0? When testing 1000 desktops I'm seeing 200-400 stuck.

Same image as I was using for 3.7. I simply removed the apps installed by the 3.7 target setup, and ran the 4.0 target setup.

Win7x32, Office 2007, Application experience service is enabled (was not enabled with 3.7 testing; I did make that change in response to a target error message.

vSphere host and array are being run well under capacity, so it isn't anything there. I was just trying to run some smaller tests to verify it works fine before I moved on to the newer version.

I've had to go back to 3.7 for now as I have test deadlines but I hope to move back to 4.0 in a few weeks when I start a new batch of tests.

Hi Jason,

The best way to find the cause of the stuck sessions is to investigate the errors in the active test directory within the _VSI_Logfiles. The Debug directory contains EngineLogs, Errorshots, LauncherLogs & WorkloadLogs.

Within the Errorshots there will be two screenshots per sessions, one that will provide the VSI error message and one without.
This should provide you enough information about the cause of the stuck sessions.

Kind Regards,

Looks like I found the issue (see below), but I won't know for sure until I move back to 4.0 and retest.

“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.”

"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."
