Problem this snippet solves:


v1.5.0rc1 has been released to the iApp package on downloads.f5.com in the RELEASE_CANDIDATE directory. for information, see https://devcentral.f5.com/codeshare/early-release-vmware-view-and-horizon-view-iapp.


Version 1.4.0rc3 contains the following fixes over the released release candidate iApp version 1.4.0rc1

The deployment guide for iApp f5.vmware_view.v1.4.0rc3 is available on f5.com

Resolved issue when advanced monitor password field contained curly braces.


Fixed an issue in the APM RADIUS configuration where the iApp would fail when attempting to create an APM RADIUS AAA Server profile object on APM versions 11.5 and 11.6.


  • Added support for Horizon View 6.2
  • Added SmartCard support (2 pin prompt solution)
  • Added two-factor authentication using RADIUS with Active Directory

F5 has released v1.4.0rc1 of the Horizon View iApp template to downloads.f5.com in the RELEASE CANDIDATE directory. Use the link below for instructions on downloading the iApp template, but make sure you get the latest template from the release candidate directory.

You can use this F5 supported iApp template to configure availability, encryption, and remote access for VMware View 5.0 and 5.1, and Horizon View 5.2, 5.3, 6.0, 6.1, 6.11, and 6.2. This template will configure the BIG-IP LTM module as well as BIG-IP APM for environments using Security Servers in conjunction with Connection Servers or Connection Servers only.

The iApp provides multiple ways of deploying the BIG-IP system with View. Specifically, if View is deployed with View Security Servers, the BIG-IP system can further protect, monitor, and load balance these servers, allowing PC-over-IP (PCoIP) Security Gateway services to be moved out of the DMZ. If only View Connection Servers are used, the BIG-IP LTM system can protect, monitor, and load balance those Connection Servers to provide greater reliability and more predictable scaling.

For instructions on downloading and installing the template, see SOL15041. For guidance on configuring the iApp and preparing the View environment, see the deployment guide.

  • Does anyone have an idea of how to do multiple domain authentication with this template? Our View 6 deployment has 3 AD domains for authentication. The Template only creates one AAA service. How can I add two more AAA services to the template for authentication?

    You can configure multiple domains using the latest iApp. Make sure you are in "advanced" configuration mode and you will see a question appear in the APM section asking if you would like to support multiple domains. You will, however, need to make the AAA server profiles prior to running the iApp.
  • Thanks. I found this issue was with the template. I was using the optimized template. I switch to the view_1.3 and it had the settings.
