VDI

LabStats supports VMware View and Citrix VDI environments. LabStats supports tracking physical thin clients and can report on them as if they were a normal desktop. Thin clients can also be added to LabMaps. LabStats also supports tracking virtual desktops.

To get started:

  1. Login into LabStats and navigate to Admin > Client Downloads.
  2. Download the Windows EXE or MSI.
  3. The necessary install path will be determined by the virtualization software:

VMWare View: "C:\Path to LabStatsGO-7.17.424.1.exe" --vdi 1
Citrix: "C:\Path to LabStatsGO-7.17.424.1.exe" --citrix 1

For MSI installation, use the following:

VMWare View: “msiexec /i “path to LabStatsGO-7.17.309.1.msi” INSTALLVDI=1″

Citrix: “msiexec /i “path to LabStatsGO-7.17.309.1.msi” INSTALLCITRIX=1″

VMware View Configuration

Install the LabStats Client using the “vdi” parameter and the client will begin to connect with the zero thin client.

The connectivity agent’s group policy settings will also need to be updated. For example, in View Agent, the CommandsToRunOnConnect and CommandsToRunOnReconnect group policy settings must be configured.

ViewClient_MAC_Address
ViewClient_Machine_Name
ViewClient_IP_Address

Citrix Configuration

Install the LabStats Client using the “vdi” parameter and the client will begin to connect with the zero thin client.
