Hi,


We are trying to build a POC WVD installation. Upon creating a master image on an Azure VM and installing the agent (with the host pool token baked in), bootloader and stackSxS installer I have seen a strange issue with the two hosts in my host pool.


It seems to only register one host if I run a   Get-RdsSessionHost. If I restart the agent on either machine, that machine then becomes visible with the same cmdlet. 

If i uninstall the agent from a machine, and re-install it with the same token , the command then shows both hosts. I am assuming that it's because I installed it into the image. Is there any advice for doing this so that once built all machines from a master image all affiliate to the pool correctly?

 

Thanks if anyone can help!

From all investigation I've done on this in the last week, it doesn't seem recommended to install the RDInfra Agent on a master image before deploying to any given host pool.

 

Any documentation I've found seems to suggest installing the agent after machine creation and giving it then pool token.  This is a real pain and I can't see an easy way of installing this across multiple RDS environments/hosts. 


That's pretty poor, I'll add this to my "reasons this isn't an enterprise ready product", after "can't entitle groups of users" as the first reason.
