Installing on Xenapp 6.5 on 2008 R2

I am installing on a Xenapp Desktop on 2008 R2 the user profile is locked down and nothing can be run from these directories

I have created a share where the VSI.exe is being Installed which is dedicated for each use. However when i try and run from here it fails and tries to start in the local user profile \appdata\path I can't see any settings which will allow this to be changed but wondered if

1) I am just missing something

2) There is a setting in the VSI.ini file which would allow this to be run from elsewhere

Hi Tom,

Login VSI can be started from any location but by default it expects to be within the default VSIshare. To change this you can start Login VSI either with a command-line parameter:

\\path\to\exe\VSI.exe "\\server\VSIshare"

Or by creating an INI file with the following layout:

VSI.ini (place next to VSI.exe executable)
[VSI]
VSITarget=\\server\VSIshare

Hi thanks for that already had the INI file

I have got beyond this issue by removing the /Logon command from the end of the command line

However I am now getting an issue with the following Cannot create Workload action Profile

Can you advise what its trying to create and where

Probably you do want to re-enable the /Logon parameter and configure VSI to chained mode. It will then run logon and start the benchmark right after without relying on any other startup mechanisms.

MMC > Workload > Settings

Its trying to read the workload file (typically medium.txt) from the VSIshare but for some reason is unable to. Could be that its resolved when you configure vsi to chained mode but not a 100% certain.

OK

for anyone else who hits this found it

The scripts for LOGINVSI use a %TMP% setting which needs to be altered if you cannot use the user profile directories

Hi,

You beat me to it :). Ive forwarded it to the dev-team so i can check if we can make this easier to configure in the future. Thanks for your efforts.

Hi Galt,

It probably still tries to find the workloads in the TMP directory. Let me see if i can reproduce in my lab. Ill get back to you.

Hello Tom,

I am not sure if your issue is fixed, but I guess it is related to the use of CreateProfiles (for more info see: www.loginvsi.com/forum/support-v4/736-ru...reate-profiles-fails ).

Kind regards,
René
