You are using RDP rather than the VMWare to connect to the view connection.  If you change the the VMWare protocol it should let you right in.  Otherwise you have to add rdp rights to users on the pool machines.  The parent permissions will not pull to the children for some reason.

PCOIP is the protocol that was slipping my mind.  it basically creates a console session.

I added RDP rights using GP and adding groups to RDP on the computer side of GP.  This allows for a configuration that applys to the computer at boot... or Vm in this case.

Yea you should be using PCOIP. There is no need to use RDP on the client side.  Are you using HP thin client desktops and laptops and then using the vmware view agent on the desktop to connect to the view connection server?  How are you connecting to the view connection server?  Are you using a windows client with vmware view installed on it? or a thin client?  are you using a HP thin pro client with thinpro control center or a HP thin client laptop with windows 7 embedded ?

Yea I agree. On the HP Thin Client pro desktop within the HP thin client control center you select different connection types such as RDP or Vmware view, etc

PCoip works fine from inside...this is an outside connection that is using RDP

Then you will need to create a usergroup for users using the RDP sessions
in GPO go to computers side and add the group to a policy applied to the needed machines.  This will add them every time they are booted saving you the headache of redoing it when you refresh or reuild the machines.

I am looking up the exact GPO setting as its been 6 months since I set this up.

  1. Run gpedit.msc to open the Group Policy editor
   2. Navigate to the following location: Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment
   3. Double-click the "Allow logon through Terminal Services" item
   4. Add the account in question to the list of allowed users

There the instructions are.

You can do tis individually or by group.. group just makes manageability easier.
