Does anyone know if Finesse, running on Citrix XenDesktop (or any other VDI) supports monitoring and recording services in version 10.5? I've looked around but the documentation is vague.
I've deployed it on couple of occations and it works fine as the call never goes through VDI unless you use softphone which is different discussion. Make sure your VDI environment meets the version requirements:
First of all, for Finesse recording and monitoring UCCX does not play any role. Finesse Monitoring is done through the CUCM and is being invoked through the BIB of phone. Hence, as far as you are using a supported IP Phone you are good there. For recording on Finesse, you need MediaSense and that too works on the concept of forking either phone based (using the BIB) or cube based (dial-peer based forking) so you are good there as well. No need to worry about the desktops you are running there i.e., physical or virtual.
