ACE redirection of users to specific Brokers via AD authentication for VMWare View

Hi

I'm currently looking at a requirement we have to direct users to a particular VMWare broker dependent up AD credentials. An overview is that we have 2 data centers, each with a specific brokers and set of VDIs. Users are mapped to a particular data centre where their VDI exists. When they are sent to a particular DC I want the ACE to check credential against AD and determine if they should be going to the local broker or redirected to the other DC.

I've had a look at the F5 LTM with the APM installed and this supports this functionality. However I can't see anything on the ACE that provides a handoff to AD for user credential checking to make decisions on which broker to send the user to. Does anybody know if the ACE supports this type of feature?

Thanks

Malcolm

Hi Malcom,

I'm afraid the ACE doesn't provide the option to parse AD authentication.

Hi Daniel

Thanks for the response. Do you know if there are any plans to provide this functionality on the ACE in the future?

Thanks

Malcolm

Hi Malcolm,

You may need to talk to your Cisco SE engineer to do a Product Enhancement Request to analyze and eventually add it in future releases
