Azure Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) deploying - is access to internet required? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

    I am deploying WVD and everything is working fine if I'm using vnet/subnet with access to Internet.  

    However, if I'm using subnet with NO access to Internet it finish deployment successfully, but the Hosts (VMs) never appear under Session Hosts...  I think they need to download some binaries from the web and that's why it's failing...

    I also tried to manually install Agent (with registration key from my Host Pool) and Boot loader, but it still does not work. 

    Is access to the web for Session Hosts a requirement for WVD deployment?

    Thank you!
