You can verify that your load balancing script is working correctly by viewing RDS farm and RDS host information in View Administrator.


  1. In View Administrator, click Dashboard and expand RDS Farms in the System Health pane.
  2. View the health of the farm that contains the RDS hosts.
    The health of the farm should be green. If a load balancing script is configured on only some of the RDS hosts in a farm, View Administrator sets the health of the farm to yellow. You must configure the load balancing script on all of the RDS hosts in a farm or on none of the RDS hosts in a farm.
  3. Expand the farm and click the name of each RDS host to view its load preference.
    The Server load field in the details dialog box shows the load preference reported by Horizon Agent, for example, Light load, new sessions okay. If Horizon Agent did not report a load preference, the Server load field shows Load not reported.

What to do next

If load balancing is not working as you expected, verify the content of your load balancing script. If the script is written correctly, verify that the VMware Horizon View Script Host service is running and that the same load balancing script is configured on each RDS host in the farm.
