Before enabling this feature, you should evaluate if this feature is still compliant with your security policies.
Configure the Connection Server
To enable the Login as current user capability, you need first to configure your Connection Servers.
Login as administrator to your Connection Server by entering the correct credentials then click Sign in.
From the Horizon console, access the Settings > Servers area. Go to Connection Servers tab, select the first server to configure and click Edit.
Select Authentication section.
Scroll down the screen and enable the Accept logon as current user option under Current User Authentication. Depending on your environment, you may need to enable additional options.
- Allow Legacy Clients option - if you are using Horizon Client versions 2006 and 5.4 and earlier versions, you must enable also this option.
- Allow NTLM Fallback - when there is no access to the domain controller, NTLM authentication is used instead of Kerberos. NTLM group policy settings must be enabled in Horizon Client.
Click OK when done.
Repeat same operation also for the other Connection Servers.
Configure the Horizon View Client
Open the Horizon View Client and click on the Settings drop-down menu and enable the Log in in as current user option.
When you try connecting the Horizon infrastructure from Horizon View Client, the user is logged automatically without prompting for credentials.
Bear in mind that option Login as current user is available only after rebooting the VM once the Horizon Client has been installed.
