In View 4.5 and later releases, you can use the vdmimport command to import configuration data from an LDIF configuration file into a standard or replica Horizon Connection Server instance.

About this task

By default, the vdmimport command-line utility is installed in the C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\tools\bin directory.



  1. Log in to a Connection Server instance as a user in the Administrators role.

    You must be logged in as a user in the Administrators role to import configuration data into the View configuration repository.

  2. At the command prompt, type the vdmimport command and use the -f option to specify the LDIF configuration file to import.

    For example: vdmimport -f myexport.LDF


After the vdmimport command runs, the configuration of your Connection Server instance is updated with the data from the file, and the number of records that have been successfully updated is displayed. Errors are displayed if some records could not be updated because your role has insufficient privileges.
