VMware Horizon

  • External drives mounted already before connection, do not appear in the remote desktop. Workaround: map the directory /media as a drive in your 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, if you want to use USB redirection for your storage devices: Note that the USB on-insertion feature is only working if 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, if you use drive mapping instead, it is recommended that you should either switch off USB redirection entirely or at least deny storage devices by adding a filter to the USB class rules. And because Horizon Client relies on the OS to mount the storage devices itself, please go to setup page: Devices > Storage Devices > Storage Hotplug and switch on 'Enable dynamic drive mapping' and put 'Number of storage hotplug devices' to at least 1.
