The background is that I want my users to be able to loose the connection and still have the session available at the RDS side for a few hours. I want to cover scenarios like computer going to sleep etc and still keep any partial work. I also use FSLogix profile shares to hide the fact that users can end up on one of many session hosts.
I get this to work with a single session host. WVD then picks the only available session host and the disconnected user session is automatically used.
When I add a second session host, it seems that WVD does not care that the user already has a session on session host x and happily routes the user to session host y. (Where a completely new session is created - Adding to the problem, the profile share on FSLogix is locked by the disconnected session - a local profile on the machine is created after a timeout - this breaks my shared profile approach)
How can I force WVD to route users with disconnected sessions to the disconnected session?
How can i configure FSLogix to fail the session rather than falling back to local profiles?

@Johan_Eriksson So basically you're asking for what Citrix is calling "Auto Client Reconnect" ?
I was hoping this would be a native function in WVD. This is quite important.

@Ola Holtberget I also had hoped it was supported.
I hope I am just lacking some simple configuration step.
Otherwise I will have to terminate sessions on any kind of disconnection such computer going to sleep which will lead to a worse user experience. Or I could possibly get a MUCH bigger session host and have just one, if this really is a WVD limitation.

@Ola Holtberget To be clear: I can accept another login - But I want WVD to connect the the existing session host x, not create a new one on host y in addition to the one in disconnected state on host x.

@Johan_Eriksson Also running into the same issue. If a user disconnects for any reason, when attempting to reconnect, they get assigned a new session host as opposed to taking over their existing disconnected session. I have replicated this to happen every single disconnect/reconnect attempt.
