    In ePO is there a way to find VDIs?

    infinity_uk

      Hi,

       

      Is there a way to get ePO to show VDIs. There is a field in queries to select VDIs, but my VDIs are not showing.

       

      Thanks.

          Moved to EPO forum as better chance of an answer there than in the general community area

            Hi All,

             

            ePO cannot identify the VDI by its own, While installing the McAfee Agent you have to specify that it is a VDI only then it will show in VDI mode as ON.

             

            NOTE: The command to install McAfee Agent with VDI mode enabled is:

             

            FramePkg.exe /Install=Agent /enableVDIMode

              Hi infinity_uk

               

              If you are using streamed templates, you can run the command before your 'seal' the Gold template Image. This will ensure that all PVS images get the VDI flag set.

               

              This ensures that the Agent GUIDs get un-provisioned when the VDI is shut down.

                To add some additional context, the VDI mode switch is helpful in non-persistent VDI environments where machines are being spun up and spun down. If you're simply deploying client VMs on top of a hypervisor and they are static and assigned to a single user, the VDI mode switch isn't really necessary. You can use the VDI mode switch, or you can also use the Data Center Connectors, if you're licensed, and ePO will sync machine information from your hypervisors, and if existing system objects are found in ePO, it will merge the objects together, and you'll have a new tab with the synced information along with some queries and dashboards that might be of some help as well.
