1864998: Single Sign On (SSO) does not work well on a RHEL/CentOS 7.2 desktop when you add a domain using System Security Services Daemon (SSSD).
Workaround: After you add a domain using SSSD, modify the /etc/pam.d/password-auth file using the information in VMware Knowledge Base article 2150330.
2326969: When a client user authenticating with smart card redirection connects to an Ubuntu 18.04 desktop and removes or reinserts the smart card before entering the PIN, the desktop does not appear to recognize the change. The desktop will only detect a change in the smart card's state after the user closes the prompt asking for the PIN.
Workaround: At the prompt, enter the smart card PIN and click OK. Or click Cancel to dismiss the prompt without entering a PIN.
2322548: When a client user connects to an Ubuntu 18.04 desktop, "Error 2306: No suitable token available" appears on the login screen. This error message indicates that a smart card has been removed from the client system.
Workaround: The user can log in to the desktop by entering the user password or reinserting the smart card.
2322562: On Ubuntu 18.04, the desktop screensaver does not lock as expected when the user removes a smart card from the client system. By default, the desktop screensaver does not lock even after the client user removes the smart card used to authenticate into the desktop.
Workaround: Configure pkcs11_eventmgr to specify the correct screensaver behavior in response to smart card events.
2266641: After you install Horizon Agent with smart card redirection enabled (-m parameter set to "yes") on a RHEL 7.0 desktop, Horizon Console or vSphere might display a black screen. Smart card redirection is supported on desktops running RHEL 7.1 or later. The feature is not supported on RHEL 7.0 desktops.
Workaround: Install Horizon Agent with smart card redirection enabled on a desktop running RHEL 7.1 or later.
1850274: If you configure two monitors with different resolutions, and the resolution of the primary screen is lower than that of the secondary screen, you might not be able to move the mouse or drag application windows to certain areas of the screen.
Workaround: Make sure that the primary monitor's resolution is at least as large as the secondary monitor's.
2258947: When you use a smart card on a RHEL 7 desktop and enable the option to lock the screen upon removal of the card, the screen might lock immediately after you log in with the smart card. This is a known issue with RHEL 7.
Workaround: To access the desktop, unlock the screen after logging in with the smart card.
2501659, 2484103: On an Ubuntu desktop, single sign-on (SSO) malfunctions when the operating system updates the gnome-shell binary automatically. In Ubuntu, the default policy is to download and install OS updates automatically.
Workaround: Modify the policy in Ubuntu to download and install OS updates manually, instead of automatically.
2511361: When an end user uses a smart card to log in to a RHEL 8.0/8.1 desktop, the greeter might prompt for the user's password instead of the smart card PIN. This issue can occur more frequently when network latency is high.
Workaround: To reduce occurrences of this issue, edit the /etc/sssd/sssd.conf file by increasing the p11_child_timeout value under the [pam] section. Then reboot the desktop.
2398096: If a client user minimizes the window of a Linux published application using the Minimize command and then selects the Maximize command, the window is restored to its previous size instead of changing to full-screen mode as expected.
Workaround: To change to full-screen mode, select the Maximize command again.
2483646: Linux published applications do not support using the window taskbar to divide the work area in a multiple-monitor display. For example, suppose a client user has two monitors arranged side by side. If the user moves the taskbar to the right side of the left monitor's screen or the left side of the right monitor's screen, the work area is divided into two parts. However, if the user then maximizes the application window, the window is displayed incorrectly in relation to the taskbar.
2502364: When connecting to a Linux published application from Horizon Client for Mac, the application window is displayed with square corners instead of rounded corners.
2536164: If a client user leaves a nonmodal dialog box open in a Linux published application and then makes active a native application on the client system, part of the dialog box will appear to be missing when the user returns to the published application.
2538998: If the client user minimizes a Linux published application window or brings another application in front of the published application window, the taskbar fails to display the thumbnail preview of the published application window. Hovering over the published application icon in the taskbar displays a blank thumbnail instead of the contents of the published application window.
2539011: Linux published applications do not support the Aero Snap feature on Windows client systems. Users connecting to a Linux published application from Horizon Client for Windows do not have the capability to snap or fix windows to the edges of the computer screen using the keyboard or mouse.
2539030: Linux published applications do not support the jump list feature on Windows client systems. If a user connects to a Linux published application from Horizon Client for Windows and right-clicks the taskbar icon for the application, no jump list is displayed.
2539088: Due to a limitation in the work area, Linux published application windows cannot be moved partially off the edge of the client's screen or work area. If the user attempts to move a published application window past the edge of the screen, the window will bounce back inside the screen's boundaries.
2540474: If the client user opens a modal dialog box from a Linux published application, that dialog box might not appear in front of native windows.
2541343: When connecting to a published application from a Windows client system, there are some differences between the context menus of the Windows taskbar and the application window's title bar. Shift + right-clicking the application icon in the Windows taskbar displays a menu with the items: Restore, Move, Size, Minimize, Maximize, Close. Right-clicking the application window's title bar displays a menu with the items: Minimize, Maximize, Move, Resize, Close.
2397650: Published applications do not support the Move and Size context commands for the taskbar on Windows client systems. When a user Shift + right-clicks the published application icon in the Windows taskbar, Move and Size appear in the menu but neither command has any effect if selected.
2541928: Published applications do not support the Size command from the application window's context menu. When a user right-clicks the title bar of the application window, Size appears in the menu of commands but has no effect if selected.
2557790: When a user opens multiple session windows for the same published application on a Windows client system, the Cascade all windows command has no effect.
2567292: If a Windows client user with a dual monitor configuration maximizes a published application in the lower-resolution monitor's work area, the Windows taskbar turns black.
2568171: After publishing a LibreOffice application as an application pool, duplicate LibreOffice icons might appear in Horizon Client.
Workaround: From the Connection Server, manually assign the icon for the LibreOffice application.
2569231: Linux published applications do not support the Multi-Session Mode option in the application pool settings in Horizon Console.
2536161: When connected to a Linux published application, if the user opens a dialog box related to user account controls (such as when editing firewall settings), the desktop will not show.
2523872: Horizon Agent for Linux does not support session stealing between published desktops and published applications. For example, if a user has opened a published desktop session and then attempts to open an application session based on the same farm, the desktop session remains active and the application session is not established. Likewise, if the user has opened an application session and then attempts to open a published desktop session based on the same farm, the application session remains active and the desktop session is not established.
2662387: If a user types an entry into the Session Collaboration invitation text box and moves the cursor away from the text box, the original entry is cleared.
2684670: If a client user with a multi-monitor system opens a published application in seamless window mode, display problems might occur when moving the application window between monitors.
Workaround: Shift + right-click the application icon in the client's task bar and select Maximize to enlarge and refresh the window display.
2684687: Display problems might occur when a client user opens published applications in seamless window mode on a multi-monitor system where some monitors have portrait orientation and other monitors have landscape orientation. If the user maximizes the application windows in all the monitors, the task bar appears black in the landscape monitors.
2599327: Horizon Client logins to a SLED/SLES 15 SP1 desktop fail because the AccountsService library version is out of date.
Workaround: To update the AccountsService library to the required version, update the desktop operating system to SLED/SLES 15 SP2.
2668258, 2576341: When client users copy content containing images in rich text format and then paste the content into an application on a remote Linux desktop, the images might be missing from the pasted content. This issue is caused by a limitation in certain third-party applications such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice, not by Horizon Agent for Linux.
Workaround: Use a clipboard manager to retrieve the missing content from the clipboard.
2786998: When a user prints a document using the Printer Redirection feature from LibreOffice or Firefox, the document's headers and footers are missing from the output.
Workaround: Use a different office application or browser to print the document.
2787001: When a user prints a document in landscape orientation using the Printer Redirection feature, the print job sometimes fails.
2745267: Horizon Agent for Linux only recognizes valid characters in printer names. The agent replaces invalid characters in the printer name with underscores and truncates the name if its length exceeds 128 bytes.
2748100: The page margins and offsets in print jobs redirected from a remote desktop do not match the page margins and offsets in print jobs printed locally from the client system. This inconsistency is caused by different implementations of page scaling on the agent and client.
Workaround: Turn off the page scaling option by setting it to 100% or None, on both the remote desktop and the client system.
2741260: When print jobs are redirected from the remote desktop to a Windows client, N-up layouts do not print correctly. These layouts always output as left to right, and top to bottom.
