VMware Horizon – Windows 10 gold image – my best practices

This article is about my own experiences and best practices with deploy of gold image for VDI infrastructure. 

VM configuration

  • always use VMXNET3 network adapter 
  • If its possible – use flash storage array for OS HDD, i using thin provisioning. 
  • use separate VLAN for VDI desktops

Prepare your gold image

  • use only Windows builds which are supported with version of VMware Horizon 
  • i used image – Windows 10 1909 – build 18363.592
  • Install VMware tools
  • Reboot
  • Install all requiered apps 
  • reboot
  • Install Horizon Agent 
  • Reboot
  • Run OSOT
  • Shutdown
  • Create Snapshot



Disable First Logon Animation:

Name the value “EnableFirstLogonAnimation.” Double-click it and set the value to “0.”

Install Teams 


Per-machine installation

msiexec /i <path_to_msi> /l*v <install_logfile_name> ALLUSER=1 ALLUSERS=1

This installs Teams to the Program Files (x86) folder on a 64-bit operating system and to the Program Files folder on a 32-bit operating system. At this point, the golden image setup is complete. Installing Teams per-machine is required for non-persistent setups.

The next interactive logon session starts Teams and asks for credentials.
