Hello,

Since Windows Virtual desktop service relies on azure AD for authentication. Is this supported by thin clients that support RD protocol and were designed initially for classic RDS infrastructure.

Thanks

I'm also interested in this. The main business case for VWD we see is replacing current RDS/Citrix environments, while retaining the current thin client estate. If we need to buy new Windows-based computers to run WVD, the business case comes up a lot worse...

If you use a Windows 10 IOT thin client then you can install the WVD application and run the desktop
Yeah, but many companies already have linux-based thin clients, perfectly capable of running RDP against all current RDS-environments. Why would/should they not be compatible with WVD?

I have customers with 800+ HP thin clients; many of them bought within the last two years. Replacing these would be a massive investment. And seemingly completely unnecessary.
Can you provide the link to download WVD application?

I have more than 1.2k thin clients. I'm waiting for a solution. 

 

I can't wait for Microsoft give a solution and I shutdown all my RDS/Citrix on-premise.

@AmineG 

 

What's the verdict on this? I just launched my first WVD pool. works like a champ. I need to know about thin/zero client connectivity. Is there any progress with this?
