VMWare View 4 and Juniper (SA4000) assigning the right desktop to users

Hello,

we are testing VMWare View 4 in the company. LAN testing passed, but now we're moving on to WAN.

We already use Juniper SA4000 devices. We are using the following manual: http://communities.juniper.net/jnet/attachments/jnet/SSL_VPN/4948/1/juniper%20and%20vmware%20view.pd...

We've created an virtual desktop profile, but here starts the problem:

- when we enter <username> and <password> we aren't able to see a desktop pool

- then we entered a user X that is entitled tot a pool and we get the pool, but every other user who's logging in, get the VM of user X

so it seems the credentials are not correctly passed from juniper login to the VM.

Users should login with an e-ID. So if the go the de VPN webpage, the only thing they should do is choosing to login with e-ID and click the login button.

But now they can't see the pool where they are entitled to.

Any ideas to solve the problem?

Thanks

Are you using pcoip as display protocol?

The juniper uses the RDP protocol to redirect you to the vd

the default protocol is pcoip, but we checked the option to override the protocol.

The juniper terminal server protocol doen't support pcoip so make a pool with only rdp and try it out

When you use e-id <username> is the 'social security number' of the person logging in.

<password> is not specified, you need to ask for it if you want to use it.

You need to make a mapping to an internal user name.

If you, for instance, add the ssn as an attribute to an AD server you can do ldap query to AD to get the AD username.

<userAttr.samaccountname>

If you need more information, we have e-id up and running on SA.

For now we use the e-id CN tag to get there name (FirstName LastName)

Can you give some more information how you succeeded to link the AD into the juniper? And how you get the AD credentials from the E-id?

Thank you
