PCoIP Software Session Variables

The PCoIP software session variables in Microsoft's Group Policy Object (GPO) editor let you configure users' desktops with a collection of parameters that affect PCoIP sessions with soft hosts. These variables are defined in a GPO administrative template file called pcoip.adm, which is located on the View Connection Server installation directory (\”servername”\c$\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\extras\GroupPolicyFiles\pcoip.adm).

You can enable and configure PCoIP software session variables in either the Group Policy Object editor's PCoIP Session Variables > Overridable Administrator Defaults list to allow users to override settings or the PCoIP Session Variables > Overridable Administrator Defaults list to prevent users from overriding settings.

PCoIP GPO Template

For large environments, you can apply pcoip.adm to a Windows Active Directory organizational unit (OU) or to a machine that you are configuring as a template for a desktop pool. For further details, see "VMware View 5 with PCoIP Network Optimization Guide" from the VMware Documentation website.

For instructions on how to load the PCoIP session variables template to a virtual machine's GPO editor, please see KB 1085 in the Teradici Support Site.
