Im on Vsphere 6.0 and Horizon View 6.2. Following the instruction for unidesk 4, I've created a windows 10 O/S in vSphere and exported it to OVF successfully but i get the error below when creating the O/S in unidesk. I've verified that the O/S is shutdown properly and not in hibernation. In unidesk, under systems --> manage appliance, the layering service has 300GB out of 300GB free. The management service however does not indicate any local storage ( not sure if this is per design). Any ideas??

Sorry about that.  Windows 10, in an effort to be helpful, sometimes hibernates instead of shutting down properly, leaving the boot disk in a specific state that Unidesk can't touch.  In this case, you should power on the Gold image again and run following command to simply turn off hibernation:

powercfg -h off

With hibernation disabled, Windows will have to shut down properly, allowing us to import. Try to import it again

Thanks Gunther, that did the trick. Now im running into an issue with Connectors, Im trying to create connector for VMware vSphere. No matter where I try to create the connector (Images, App Layer or Platform Layer), on the connector tab when I click new--VMware vSphere--new, the connector selection always defaults back to the Network file Share without giving me an option to configure the connection. I've verified that this happens to all the connectors and not just vSphere. Any insight would be appreciated.

When you click New in the Connectors tab, it tries to open a new browser tab pointing to your ELM at a different network port where the configration actually happens.  You must have a security setting blocking popups or something like that which is preventing us from opening the new tab.  Try relaxing that restriction and see if you can get to the new tab to actually set up the vSphere connector.

I wasn't getting any indication for a popup on my default browser, switching to a different browser brought up the notification. Thanks for the assistance as always.
