Unable to start all WS ONE Connector services

I recently created a test/development environment for Workspace ONE UEM, Access, and Horizon Cloud (Next-Gen). The goal was to develop Zero Day onboarding. For Zero Day onboarding, an AD group is needed; therefore, I tried to install a Workspace ONE Connector server on Azure resources.

Because the environment is for testing and development I didn’t need a server that was according to VMware’s sizing guidelines for connector servers. See hardware requirements.

I choose a Standard B2s (2 vCPUs, 4 GiB memory) from the Azure marketplace and started the installation. The same steps were used for the installation as shown in How to migrate Workspace ONE Connector.

How to migrate Workspace ONE Connector

Until Horizon DaaS 9.1.2 only Identity Manager connector 19.03.0.1 could be used to access the Virtual Apps Collections however Identity Manager connector 19.03.0.1 has been out of general support since 2022-08-31. As of September 27th Workspace ONE Access connector 22.09 has been released (release notes). This version supports Virtual Apps Collections on Horizon DaaS 9.1.4 (released October 2022). Horizon DaaS 9.1.4 and Workspace ONE Access connector 22.09 will create a supported environment again.

In this post, I will show you the steps on how to migrate from the (legacy) connector 19.03.0.1 to Workspace ONE Access connector 22.09.

Migration steps.

Workspace ONE Access: VMware Verify End-of-Life

Vmware Verify is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) service that allows verification using 3 methods, Push approval with OneTouch notification, Time-based One Time Password, and text messages. VMware Verify was easy to integrate with VMware Workspace ONE Access to create a multifactor authentication.

End of life

VMware Verify will reach end-of-support (EoS) and end-of-availability date (EoA) on October 31st, 2022. The mobile application will be removed from the App Store and Play Store on this date. Current users will also be unable to use the application for any second-factor authentication.

Load Balancing UAG’s with NSX-T

Unified Access Gateway for end-user computing products and services needs high availability for Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon on-prem deployments. Unified Access Gateway appliances work with standard third-party load balancing solutions that are configured for HTTPS and also has an out-of-the-box High Availability solution. The out-of-the-box HA solution will reduce complexity and lower your TCO but it comes with the following limitations.

  • IPv4 is supported for floating Virtual IP address. IPv6 is not supported. 
  • Only TCP high availability is supported. 
  • UDP high availability is not supported. 
  • With the VMware Horizon use case, only XML API traffic to Horizon Connection Server uses high availability. High availability is not used to distribute load for the protocol (display) traffic such as Blast, PCoIP, RDP. Therefore, the individual IP addresses of Unified Access Gateway nodes must also be accessible to VMware Horizon clients in addition to the Virtual IP address.

To overcome some of the limitations you can use NSX-T Data Center logical load balancer as a load balancing solution in front of the UAG’s.

In this blog post, I would like to show you how to configure a load balancer for UAG’s in NSX-T in front of a Horizon environment.

Domain-Join account Horizon DaaS 9.x

For Horizon DaaS the Tenant environment needs 2 types of domain service accounts. A domain bind account that is used to perform lookups in your AD domain and a domain join account that is used for joining computer accounts to the domain and performing Sysprep operations.

The domain bind account is rather simpel. Just create a normal user account, provide a password and if the CISO allows you, set the password to never expire.

The domain join account is a little bit different. If you you want to do it quick and dirty you can make the account domain admin and set the password to never expire and you’re done. This however is not recommended. So we need to do delegation of control on the OU where the computer accounts will be created. The following “allow” permissions are needed for Horizon DaaS 9.1 tenants:

Adding VMware Verify to VMware Workspace ONE Access

My colleague Arno Meijroos wrote a nice blog on “How to integrate Horizon DaaS 9.0 with Workspace ONE Access“. In extent on his blog, I want to explain how to add Vmware Verify for two-factor authentication (2FA).

VMware Verify

You can use the Verify app to secure login to VMware Workspace ONE and other apps. The Verify app is available for iOS, Android, and Chrome. It uses modern mobile push tokens, where users get a push notification on their mobile device that they can simply accept or deny. When the user’s device does not have cellular reception, such as in airplane mode when traveling, the user can open the Verify app and use a one-time passcode (aka soft token). Also a one-time passcode via SMS is available.
