Client Security 10 with VDI
We're currently deploying a VDI solution using Citrix VDI-In-A-Box. It basically runs as a virtualised appliance on an MS Windows Hyper-V 2008 Server.
Therefore, when you commission client PCs, they are created as Virtual Windows 7 PC instances in Hyper-V.
The problem we have is that once you've created a machine build template & publish it, it gets cloned effectively everytime a user logs on giving them their own machine or individual desktop if you like.
However, while each machine then has a unique account created in AD, the F-Secure PM see's subsequent machines as identical, therefore not registering any further hosts!
What we have observed is that F-Secure does see the first cloned machine from each template but subsequent PCs are not seen as separate entities, even though they have unique AD machine accounts.
What seems to be the issue is that the machines have the same UID, even though we deploy the client installation with the Randomise option set.
Even though all the clients update, I'm concerned that this isn't working as it should & then there's the fact that we'll never actually get proper stats back or be able to identify any potential security issues that F-Secure reports because it'll be unable to identify the actual problem host!
Any ideas? Is there a workaround or a fix?
