Hello team,


I understand that the stage phase that occurs in a boot process for a single session host will work well because it mounts the disk in the instance and a single user will use it, however, in a multi-session host, when staging during boot, only the first user to log gets all the packages assigned to him.

 

So, I was wondering if on a multi-session host in a WVD environment the staging process needs to happen during the user's login, so the VHD will be mounted in the user's context or running it at startup is enough?

 

I would appreciate any help on this.

Thank you,

Hi @flalmeida

 

You can stage the package once at startup for a given VM and that will be enough. Thereafter, only the registration will need to happen for each user.

 

Cheers,

Tanaka
