With Horizon View, if you want to publish servers in desktop mode, such as publishing Server 2008 R2 as a desktop, you’ll have to make some changes within ADSI Edit. The change is fairly straightforward. Here’s a quick tutorial on how to get it done.
To start, open up ADSI Edit on your VMware Connection server, or any server on the domain with access to your domain controller:
From there, choose More Actions over on the right and choose Connect To. Enter the following:
Browse out to View ADAM Database, DC=…, OU=Properties, OU=Global, and double click on CN=Common. Scroll down to pae-EnableServerInDesktopMode and change this option to 1.
That’s it! Just as the name of the switch implies, you’ll be able to enable publishing servers in desktop mode.
