The functionality of this Fling has been integrated into Horizon View 6.1 and due to this, this Fling has been retired. This means that this Fling will not be updated in the future and comments will not be responded to. However, you can still download this Fling if you are using earlier versions of Horizon View.

Any plans for working with horizon 6.1.1 ?

Currently have error

C:\Tools\viewdbchk-x86_64-e.x.p-1990161-1>viewdbchk.cmd --findDesktop --desktopName VMKP002
Looking for desktop pool "VMKP002" in LDAP...

You should find that ViewDbChk in integrated into the 6.1.1 release, so you should be using the integrated version instead of the fling.

Please use the version under "C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\tools\bin" and update me with how you get on.

I wish there was a --listMachines options that would list the machines that are in a pool, by netbios name machine name not Adam database name. It would look something like this: viewdbchk.cdm --listMachines --desktopName

In view administrator my machines have names like Standard-001. However in AD the machine is STANDARD-001.
So this happens:

viewdbchk.cmd –findMachine –desktopName Standard –machineName Standard-001
