We are introducing virtual Desktops on VmWare View (VDI).
What is the best solution to install the DL service?
Deployment via GPO or include the DL service in our Basic / Goldenimage / Template to Clone this maschine?
Will we get problems if we clone the service?
Or there are other options?

Thx

It would be recommended to use a GPO rather than cloning due to having to rebuild the image anytime the service is updated. It is much easier to push updates via a GPO than to reimage each machine anytime there is an update. Each VM would require the use of a single license.

What other disadvantages between having GPO or simple cloning? What are the advantages of both?

Using a GPO results is automatic updates everytime the policy updates. Cloning does not offer this automatic update function.
