  • Citrix StoreFront login with Gemalto smartcard middleware does not detect smartcard correctly when the card is inserted after start of login. As a workaround, insert the smartcard before starting StoreFront login.

VMware Horizon

  • External drives mounted already before connection do not appear in the remote desktop.
    Workaround: mapping the directory /media as a drive on desktop.
    Then the external devices will show up inside the media drive.
  • Client drive mapping and USB redirection for storage devices should not be enabled both at the same time.
    • On the one hand, when using USB redirection for storage devices: The USB on-insertion feature is only working when the client drive mapping is switched off. In the IGEL Setup client drive mapping can be found in: Sessions > Horizon Client > Horizon Client Global > Drive Mapping > Enable Drive Mapping. It is also recommended to disable local Storage Hotplug: On page Devices > Storage Devices > Storage Hotplug, put number of storage hotplug devices to 0.
    • On the other hand, when using drive mapping instead, it is recommended to either switch off USB redirection entirely or at least deny storage devices by adding a filter to the USB class rules. Furthermore, Horizon Client relies on the OS to mount the storage devices itself. Change on the following setup page is required: Devices > Storage Devices > Storage Hotplug.
      Activate Enable dynamic drive mapping and set Number of storage hotplug devices to at least 1.
