VMware AppVols do not attach when assignment is set to a security group


The Problem

During a tidy up of Active Directory I moved some security groups used by VMware AppVols to a new OU. The side effect of doing this is that no AppStacks were being assigned on new logins to Horizon View desktops, oops!

The Fix

The easiest way to fix this is to remove the assignment from the AppStack

Rename the security group in Active Directory

And the re-assign the security group to the AppStack

This fixed the problem for me. Hopefully it will help you as well
