VMWare View for iPad “Desktop loading warning - Your desktop is loading too slowly.”

Summary:

When attempting to connect to a VMWare View 4.5 environment via a Security server the following error is generated:

Desktop loading warning - Your Desktop is loading too slowly, please check your network

VMWare View for iPad is technically made for View 4.6, however, it will work w/ a 4.5 environment, just not connecting through a 4.5 security server.  So it’s a half-truth.

WorkAround:

  1. Utilize VPN on your iPad. 
  2. Connect to a 4.5 Connection Server (not a 4.5 security server)
    • This can normally be achieved through step 1 or via your internal wireless network.

Resolution:

  1. Upgrade to View 4.6. 
    1. Easy if you are running Windows 2008 R2.
      1. Why 2008 R2?  This is the only to get PCoIP support through the security server. 
    2. A bit more complicated if you find yourself needing to upgrade the OS on all your connection/security servers from Windows 2003.
