Hello:

 

I am deploying WVD and everything is working fine if I'm using vnet/subnet with access to Internet.  

However, if I'm using subnet with NO access to Internet it finish deployment successfully, but the Hosts (VMs) never appear under Session Hosts...  I think they need to download some binaries from the web and that's why it's failing...

I also tried to manually install Agent (with registration key from my Host Pool) and Boot loader, but it still does not work. 

 

Is access to the web for Session Hosts a requirement for WVD deployment?

 

Thank you!

Hi @Oleg_A, the host VMs need access to the RDBroker service over 443 - not complete internet access, but you'll need to adjust your NSG or Vnet service connections to allow the destinations set out here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/virtual-desktop/troubleshoot-vm-configuration#error-windows-v...

@AndyWalman https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-desktop/overview - this has a list of mandatory URLs that the session host needs access to (apart from WVD broker).

Thank you for your help, guys!!! Really appreciated!

 

Thanks again,
