Testing a Pooled Managed Windows 2012 R2 VDI Enviroment

I'm currently trying to test a single server's VDI capabilities using the LoginVSI Express. I have currently set up the server with Windows 2012 R2 with the RD Virtualisation Role and 50 Windows 8.1 Managed Clients in a Pool. Unfortunately to connect to this pool a custom RDP generated by RDweb or the following lines have to be added to a normal RDP file:
use redirection server name:i:1
loadbalanceinfo:s:tsv://VMResource.1.LoginVSI

Is there a way to specify this to RDPConnector or another way round the issue that I am missing?

Thanks

I have added a link in this thread. Please download this file and replace the RPDConnect.exe in the VSIshare\_VSI_Binaries\Connectors folder.
loginvsi.eu/Support/Jan14/RDPConnect-MSVDI.zip

Example:

“{VSISHARE}\_VSI_Binaries\Connectors\RDPConnect.exe” /server {server} /user {domain}\{username} /password {password} /nowarning -loadbalanceinfo tsv://MS Terminal Services Plugin.1.Standard

Omar, was this issue with RDPConnect.exe fixed in LoginVSI 4.1? If not, when is the plan to get the /loadbalanceinfo parameter fixed and working in RDPConnect?

Michael,

Have a look at the release notes . One of the items is

Resolved bug: In some situations the RDPconnect failed to use the RDP load balancing function. This has been resolved

Please note that you will have to add /broker to the command line in addition to the command line created by the management console wizard.

Thanks for prompt reply, Dennis. So I see this was fixed in 4.1.3 release date March 26, 2015.

Did you mean to say "connection string should include /server parameter", not /broker? If it's /broker, can please paste an example of working connection string for a MS VDI connection?

“{VSISHARE}\_VSI_Binaries\Connectors\RDPConnect.exe” /server {server} /user {domain}\{username} /password {password} /nowarning /loadbalanceinfo tsv://vmresource.1.LoginVSITest /broker

Where /server points to your broker.
