Updated: March 10, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization 2.0

After your test of first time setup finishes, you can verify that the URL redirection functionality is working as expected by performing the following tasks.

ImportantImportant
The MED-V Host Agent must be running for URL redirection to function correctly.

To test URL Redirection

  1. Open an Internet Explorer browser in the host computer and enter a URL that you specified for redirection.

  2. Verify that the webpage is opened in Internet Explorer on the guest virtual machine.

  3. Repeat this process for each URL that you want to test.

To test that a URL can be added or removed

  1. Add or remove a URL from the MED-V workspace.

    For information about how to add and remove URLs for redirection on a MED-V workspace, see Manage MED-V URL Redirection.

  2. If you added a URL to the redirection list, repeat the steps in To test URL Redirection to verify that the new URL redirects as intended.

  3. If you removed a URL from the redirection list, verify that it is removed by following these steps:

    1. Open an Internet Explorer browser in the host computer and enter the URL that you removed from the redirection list.

    2. Verify that the webpage is opened in Internet Explorer on the host computer instead of on the guest virtual machine.

      noteNote
      It can take several seconds for the URL redirection changes to take place.

noteNote
If you encounter any problems when verifying your URL redirection settings, see Operations Troubleshooting.

After you have completed testing URL redirection in your MED-V workspace, you can test other configurations to verify that they function as intended.

After you have completed testing your MED-V workspace package and have verified that it is functioning as intended, you can deploy the MED-V workspace to your enterprise.
