In this blogpost I describe the challenge with stateful desktops in a multi-datacenter View environment: VMware doesn’t support it!
Stateful vs. Stateless
In my opinion, a stateful desktop is a desktop, usually with a static user assignment, where the user can make changes to the system, like installing applications. A stateless desktop is a desktop in a desktop pool with a floating assignment and configured to refresh after the user logs off. It’s no problem to failover a user to another View site, using stateless desktops. This blogposts is about site-failover a stateful desktop.
