Hi All,

 

I've succesfully deployed a Windows Virtual Desktop tenant and host pool. However, I'm trying to publish a remote app, which is not showing in the webfeed of the assigned user.

 

Any idea's?

 

Add-RdsAppGroupUser TENANTNAME POOLNAME RemoteApps-Test -UserPrincipalName marktest1@wvddomain.com
Add-RdsAppGroupUser : The specified UserPrincipalName(s) is already assigned to a Desktop AppGroup in the specified HostPool.

@markkrolwsb : Windows Virtual Desktop has the restriction that within a host pool, a user cannot be assigned to both a desktop app group and a RemoteApp app group. This means that you'll have to first remove the user assignment (Remove-RdsAppGroupUser) to the desktop app group before you can re-assign that user (Add-RdsAppGroupUser) to the RemoteApp app group.

@christianmontoya, Thanks for your reply!

 

So it is not possible to assign remote apps AND a full desktop to users?

@markkrolwsb : Correct. We have gotten lots of feedback to add this as a feature, so we will consider it! Also, when we have our UserVoice up and running, you should make sure to create/upvote that feature.

 

Thanks!

Solution

I tried creating another host pool in the same tenant and then created a new RemoteApp App Group. Assigned to the same user and it works. So that means we can assign a user with RemoteApp and Desktop App group but it should be from different host pool and not from same pool.@markkrolwsb

@christianmontoyaWhy isn't this a feature by default? Where can i upvote this, this should be added!

@Rg035 : The reason we don't have this behavior supported by default is because of the trickiness of having 2 sessions on the VM, since the desktop session is different than a RemoteApp session. We've heard similar feedback from other customer engagements.

 

Here is our UserVoice channel to create/upvote this feature: https://aka.ms/wvdfbk .
