View Agent communicates with View Connection Server and supports the display protocol PCoIP. You must install View Agent on an RDS Host.



  1. Log in as an administrator.
  2. To start the View Agent installation program, double-click the installer file.

    The installer filename is VMware-viewagent-x86_64-y.y.y-xxxxxx.exe, where y.y.y is the version number and xxxxxx is the build number.

  3. Select the Internet Protocol (IP) version, IPv4 or IPv6.

    You must install all View components with the same IP version.

  4. Select your custom setup options.
  5. In the Server text box, type the host name or IP address of a View Connection Server host.

    During installation, the installer registers the RDS host with this View Connection Server instance. After registration, the specified View Connection Server instance, and any additional instances in the same View Connection Server group, can communicate with the RDS host.

  6. Select an authentication method to register the RDS host with the View Connection Server instance.



    Authenticate as the currently logged in user

    The Username and Password text boxes are disabled and you are logged in to the View Connection Server instance with your current username and password.

    Specify administrator credentials

    You must provide the username and password of a View Connection Server administrator in the Username and Password text boxes.

    The user account must be a domain user with access to View LDAP on the View Connection Server instance. A local user does not work.

  7. Follow the prompts and finish the installation.
