The VMware View client fails to connect through APM if backend replies with chunked response


VMware View Client is unable to get the list of desktops.


VMware View Connection Server sends chunked HTTP response. This can happend for example when there are many desktops configured (around 10 and more).


Use iRule to remove "Transfer-Encoding" header, before response is sent to client. This can be done in HTTP_RESPONSE_RELEASE event on VDI virtual (or in HTTP_RESPONSE on additional VS facing client before VDI virtual).

Fix Information

The VMware View client can now connect through APM when the backend replies with a chunked response.
