I'm excited about winning some contest somewhere that lets me go :)
We currently are licensed for Horizon View Standard and we are trying to figure out if there is a way automate the first login of a desktop after refresh. On our campus, we assign a pool of desktops to a lab, so a student may not get the same desktop twice. First time login of a desktop after refresh is around 1 minute 45 seconds, with subsequent logins around 30 seconds or less. If we could have the system login to that desktop the first time in order to get all of the first time processes out of the way, it would greatly improve the student experience.

The did you have roaming profiles with re-directed folders (desktop, downloads & documents) so that entire profile do not get copied.

Has anyone else experienced this with VMware? They asked us to perform a self-audit. Basically run a few reports on our VCenter. They returned that we had a a trial of VCOP that we had not paid for. Well it was a free trial their sales rep had wanted us to give a try, this is at least 3 years ago. We never used the software and the license had long ago expired. They now want us to pay for that since we never removed it and still had the license on our VCenter. The VM appliance that accompanied VCOP has not even been turned on for 2 or 3 years. They are going to put us in touch with a rep. so we shall see what deal they want to make us.

If you have emails to back it up, I would be blunt wit them an tell them to poke it. I had a great row wit a supplier back in one of old companies who sent me a bill for a paper towel dispenser we had in a building that the company no long owned. If fact they had got rid of it 5 years before I joined. So they got a rather curt reply from me and were soon on their way.

As you describe it, I'm upvoting the proposed response. Why should I pay anyone for an installed trial software that has expired? If I/we didn't buy it how does still-installed software raise to something like piracy.
Are you absolutely sure that you are talking to someone at VMWare with the job description, in the right part of the company and responsibility and authority to tell you/your company anything like this? Based on the details provided so far, I can't know whether you're responding to a phishing attempt, a sales person looking for sales, your third party reseller that you do all-things-vmware with, a lawyer or even if you have been reported to one of those software anti-piracy organizations?
