USB redirection not working in Windows Server 2012 RDS DaaS virtual machines (2149869)

  • 0 Ratings


  • USB redirection is not working in Windows Server 2012 RDS virtual machines.
  • If RDS role is removed from same image, then USB redirection works as expected.


In earlier versions of View Agent 6.2.4, the wsnm_xmlapi.dll component is configured to disable the USB if the image is RDS host. DaaS platform entirely depends on the xmlapi for redirection and hence USB devices are not getting redirected to Windows server 2012 RDS hosts.


This issue is resolved in View Agent 6.2.4 and later versions, available at VMware Downloads.
Install View agent 6.2.4 or later versions in the Windows server 2012 RDS Virtual Machine.
