This is what I get when I login to view client .

Does this have to do with permissions on the local box , view, or Active Directory?

Active Directory Group Policy can define the resolution.

But, what are you trying to do, because the Desktop Resolution is also define by the Desktop Pool Settings, RDP or PCoIP.

If I am a domain admin, shouldnt I be able to make changes as I would on a physical box.
First I wanted to move my monitors. 2 in front of 1


Some applications I have to run as administrator and on my physical box I can install them under my account.

Under user accounts, within the vm , I have added my domain acct. as administrator.

Here are my desktop pool settings

No necessarily.

The View Client can control the view experience, and it also depends whether you are working in RDP or PCoIP modes, what are you connecting in?

RDP Spans, PCoIP uses Multimonitor.

Do you have two monitors connected?

Sometimes it can be GPO, if you have a Policy set, otherwise, it's likely to be Video RAM.

See Page 55 in the following guide

It has a policy but there is not much in the policy to prevent anything.

Why would the vidoe RAM prevent permissions?

Page 55 is about optimizing Win 7
Will theses change help my issue?

Yes, if the video ram is not set correctly you'll not get the required resolutions.

My resoultion is fine .It looks good on both monitors.
My questions was, after looking at the images, why cant I make any changes and why is it greyed out.

Its not just changing the display but permissions in general on the vm.
They are not allowing me do to the same as my physical box.

There are no display properties to change unlike a physical computer. Display Properties are fixed because it matches the display settings of the client you have connected from.

You can use the Custom option when connecting to a View Desktop.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\NoDispSettingsPage
or use NoDispSettingsPage value from 0 to 1

I dont show HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\NoDispSettingsPage
or use NoDispSettingsPage value from 0 to 1
 
Besides the display, what about my user permissions.
I added myself to the local box as administrator.

Let me try and explain, simply if I can, when using the VMware View Client to login to the Virtual View VDI Desktops, your desktop visual display settings are over-ridden by what you've selected in the View Client, and these are matched, so you do not even have any display settings permissions, whether logged in as admin or a non-priv user. (these are overridden by the view client).

Now, you probably now going to ask, so how do I do this....

You login as Administrator to the Virtual Desktop via vSphere GUI Console, and make the changes as an administrator.

Some would say this is "by design" this is what we've heard often by VMware.
