How to set up the VMware Horizon View Client Application so the user can choose between two connection servers on IGEL OS?


Hello all, is there any way of setting up the Horizon View Client Application so the user can choose between two connection servers? I managed to do that, by creating a second “session” but thats not the “prettiest” way to do it i guess.

Thanks for any suggestions and help.


I am guessing this is because of a lack of an internal load balancer?


yes and because we have 4 connection servers 2 for Horizon 7 and 2 for Horizon 8 so they are incompatible for setting up under one address. But we would still like to have both options on one session if possible.


You don’t mind a little scripting, do you?

The idea is to use the connection servers from your predefined Horizon sessions and combine them in the custom app commandline.

But for this combined session you can only use the Horizon global settings. Any other settings you have to specify manually.
