Domain-join AppStream fleet profile management issue
We are trying to deploy FSLogix profile management to a domain-joined AppStream fleet. We are also using folder redirection. Every time we try to enable profile management, I get a series of errors when the user logins in that they don't have permissions to the redirected folders of the test user. I'm using a domain user for the testing part of the sealing process, and it is applying the test user's redirected folders to any user that logs in instead of the logged in user's redirected folders. Of course the logged in user doesn't have rights to those folders and these are not the folders we need to access anyway. Anyone, know how to resolve this issue? ![![Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMBgU5bHFHT4SUc2PTKvqJbg) Enter image description here](/media/postImages/original/IMqGmD-EHGQNedUDtUEA1INQ)
Printing to DCV printer from Appstream will result in .xps file where .pdf is expected
We use Appstream 2 to host an application, which is accessed by our users via a browser. Within this environment, users have a DCV printer available. For most users, printing to the DCV printer results in a PDF file to become available in a separate browser tab. But for 1 user printing results in a XPS file. I can't find how to change this to PDF for him.
In App Stream 2.0 Getting error An unknown error occurred (1355).
Hi, I am trying to setup the ADFS with App Stream 2.0 with SAML Authentication, and have done all the steps for the needful (Referred from : https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/compute/enabling-identity-federation-with-ad-fs-3-0-and-amazon-appstream-2-0/ ) , but after login to App Stream relay state URL screen, system gives an error: "An unknown error occurred (1355)." As per my research its indicating some DNS issue. When we have checked my system ip configs, its displaying something like this : > **Windows IP Configuration** ( Host Name : EC2AMAZ-NMGRP10 [this is my server system name], Primary Dns Suffix : example.local. > **Ethernet adapter Ethernet** : Connection-specific DNS Suffix : sarvajeevan.com DNS Servers : ::1 127.0.0.1 Username for App Stream is : firstname.lastname@example.org As per my understanding, our Active directory domain name is **sarvajeevan.com**, but internal federation domain is **example.local**. Please help us to understand, we are doing something wrong or something needs to fix manually from Route 53 or something else ? Thanks
AppStream - Visual FoxPro App
Hi, I am new to appstream and running into an issue I'm not sure how fix. Installed a VSP app and it runs fine under Admin. Switch to the other users, both can run it also if I just launch the EXE. I'm mapping the initialization datafiles to %USERPROFILE% so it picks up which user is logged in and looking to setup home directories with S3. However, when I add to the image builder, it will not launch and says it can't find files under c:\program files\amazon\photon\ ... which is not even the directory I have the app running. Any pointers? Thank you.
Anyone else getting blank password window when streaming MS Office App
When I attempt to stream and MS Office app (in my case Visio) I get the sign in request. I successfully respond to username request then the password request never comes up. Just a blank pane where the request would normally appear. Has anyone else experienced this and can suggest solution?
Is it possible to limit a single user to a single connection?
When a user is connected to an AppStream session in one location (on one computer), then launches a session from another workstation (or browser window), the original connection is still maintained. Compared to Workspaces or Citrix or other solutions, this is unexpected as usually the new connection causes the original one to disconnect.
s3 buckets to sync to Appstream directory
I have a on-demand AppStream which I would like to sync with a particular bucket in s3. In the AppStream config, it has the session start which kicks off a powershell task to sync the s3 bucket at start which works fine. However, I was trying to run this same powershell task during the session every 5 minutes. Since the on-demand image is sys prepped, I can’t use the scheduled task generated in Image Builder to create the scheduled task. AWS support says the only recommendation they would provide is to create the scheduled task during the session start with a powershell script which creates the task. So, I have the powershell script to create the task running at startup as system. I think I see the powershell task being created at session start in the AppStream logs (provides task name and state). However, there no trace of the scheduled task can be found. This is where I am stumped. Not sure that anybody else has had the need for something similar. Any feedback would be great!
Appstream instance storage limit
Per [documentation](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/appstream2/latest/developerguide/instance-types.html), Appstream instances have one 200 GB fixed size volume (non-persistent). For my usecase, I need the user to have access to more than 200 GB of files (graphics / images). What is the recommended way of providing more than 200 GB storage to Appstream (Windows) users?
AppStream sealing isssue with image joined to AD
I have built a new AppStream image that is joined to Active Directory. When I go to seal the image, I am using a standard domain user for the template and test user as part of the sealing process. Once I deploy the sealed image to the stack, it works fine if I log in with the same domain user to the pool. Any other user gets errors that the recycle bin is corrupted for each user data folder and we can see the path is pointing to the original test user data folders, which obviously another user doesn't have rights to access. It will prompt you with a serious of prompts for each folder and then prompt you for windows credentials, but won't accept them. After clicking cancel the user ends up with a blank desktop. I was not able to find any documentation specifically for sealing images joined to AD. Just what it says in the sealing wizard. I'll try to attach as screenshot.![Sample Error message](https://repost.aws/media/postImages/original/IMcQIMkBa_SkOu9so6OTqP2w)
How to fix Windwos computer name and user name in AppStream 2.0
The default behavior when running a Windows application on AppStream 2.0 seems to be as follows The Windows computer name changes every time (e.g. EC2AMAZ-I4C3T1Q, EC2AMAZ-G0J3FC0, etc.) The Windows account name is uniformly "PhotonUser". Can this be changed as follows (like normal Windows)? ・Fix the Windows computer name so that it does not change every time. ・Set the Windows account name to an arbitrary value for each user added with AppStream2.0.
