VDI driving me nuts

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/04/20

The VDI recently it is driving me nuts with sudden disconnects and messages like these after you have been connected for a couple of hours.

It all looks like there is some sort of Connectra thing in the middle that does deep packet inspection and randomly kicks out RDP or PCoIP sessions it doesn’t like, then doesn’t allow any new sessions to come in.

If I get a connection at all, now I always get a fresh VM, which – because they all are single core – take between 2 and 3 hours of getting below 100% CPU usage.

CcmExec.exeSMSCliUI.exe, and the svchost.exe instances for RpcSs and BITS hog the CPU scanning for updates and software installs for about about 25% of a working day.

Boy I wish there was something I could do about it.
