To change the encryption key cipher for an existing local desktop, you edit the pae-VM record for the local desktop in View LDAP on your View Connection Server host.

You use the ADSI Edit utility to modify View LDAP. The ADSI Edit utility is installed with View Connection Server. When you change View LDAP on a View Connection Server instance, the change is propagated to all replicated View Connection Server instances.

Change the encryption key cipher for local desktops. See Change the Local Desktop Encryption Key Cipher for New Key Generation.

See the Microsoft TechNet Web site for information on how to use the ADSI Edit utility on your Windows operating system version.

1

If the local desktop is checked out, check it in and remove any existing local files.

2

Start the ADSI Edit utility on your View Connection Server host.

3

In the Connection Settings dialog box, select or connect to DC=vdi, DC=vmware, DC=int.

4

In the Computer pane, select or type localhost:389 or the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the View Connection Server host followed by port 389.

For example: localhost:389 or mycomputer.mydomain.com:389

5

In the pae-VM record for the local desktop, clear the values for the pae‑mVDIOfflineAuthKey, pae‑mVDIOfflineDataKey, and pae-mVDIOfflineObfuscationKey attributes.

6

Check out the local desktop.

View Connection Server generates new keys for the local desktop. The new keys have the new encryption key cipher value.
