Have multiple users access the one virtual machine via vmware view v4.6 ...

Hi Experts,

I have just finished configuring vmware view, so i am still new playing with it.

Just curious, when i assign a user to a desktop. So they can access it remotely. Is there a way to have multiple users login to a virtual machine (not at the same time of course), like this i dont need to create a virtual machine for every user.

Thanks in advance :)
