Issue in activating the recomposed virtual machines in Deep Security Combined Mode

    • Updated:
    • 9 Mar 2016
    • Product/Version:
    • Deep Security 9.6
    • Platform:
    • CentOS 7.0 64-bit
Summary

In VDI environment, you can install Deep Security Agent (DSA) on the Master Image, and then use a script to automatically activate the DSA.

In Combined Mode with VMware Horizon View, a startup script is unnecessary because Deep Security Manager (DSM) 9.6 can activate both agentless and agent-based protection via Event-based task.

However, this does not work well on the VMware Horizon View VDI clients when they are re-composed or refreshed to their previous state. When recomposing or refreshing the VDI, DSM fails to trigger the Event-based task to activate the VMs. This happens because there is no New event sent from the vCenter.

To resolve the issue:

  1. Activate the DSA on the VDI Master Image
  2. On the console, go to Administration > System Settings > Agents.
  3. Set the following configuration on the Agent-Initiated Activation.
    • Enable the Agent-Initiated Activation
    • If a computer with the same name already exists: Re-activate the existing Computer
    • Allow re-activation of cloned VMs
