Tony Huynh, Product Management End-User Computing
It gives me great pleasure to announce that the VMware Horizon View 5.2 Microsoft Lync 2013 VDI Client Installation/Configuration Guide is now publicly available.
The document provides a step-by-step guide on how to deploy a Microsoft Lync 2013 client on a VMware Horizon View desktop along with a Lync VDI plugin on a Windows client. By doing so, customers can leverage the power of the Lync VDI plugin to make rich voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) and videoconferencing calls without negatively affecting the datacenter server or network.
The document will help partners and customers understand and avoid some common mistakes when deploying the Microsoft Lync 2013 client and Lync VDI plugin with Horizon View desktops.
Some common pitfalls when deploying the Lync 2013 client and Lync VDI plugin include:
- Knowing what is and is not supported
- Downloading/installing the correct software
- Misconfiguration of Lync 2013 server and client and Lync VDI plugin
- Windows client misconfiguration
