If a user attempts to connect to a VM, and that VM isn't working for some reason like it can't wake it up or the NIC isn't working etc. - why does it keeping trying the same machine? Over and over and over - it never tries a different one. Why could it not have a threshold in which it attempts to connect a user to another VM? Kind of a shitty design in my opinion...

This is before drive mapping. This is when the broker is trying to connect a user to a Virtual Machine (VM) it keeps trying the same VM no matter if it can't wake it up, or orchestrate it to come online (VDI pauses machines not in use, and wakes them up if needed). It will just keep trying the same VM 15 or 20 times, never trying a different one - so the user is just stuck until we figure out which machine they are getting assigned to so we can fix it or delete the VM.

Are you using UPD for end user data?

We were using UPDs but had to give up on them. Too flaky... temp profiles all over the place. Microsoft was no help after 3 tickets. Actually, as it pertains to VDI in RDS - Microsoft is almost completely worthless.

And if you hear (read, that is) that you still need an RDS CAL for every user or device even if you do VDI, it's actually less than worthless.

Having said that, I did help a couple of customers build a MS VDI with great success, obviously not using UPD but rather vanilla roaming profiles + folder redirection in one case and a third party profile management solution  in another.
