Remote access to the windows virtual machine


Hallo All,

Currently, I use VNC to access the windows virtual machine deployed in OpenStack. But this gives me a smaller view of the Windows GUI or Desktop. Is there any way from the Horizon GUI to have an enlarged view of the Windows Desktop?

Can I get any suggestions to connect to the windows virtual machine remotely apart from using VNC?

Hi JuanFra,

Thanks for the suggestion regarding the usage of cloudinit for windows instances.

For all Stackers - I found this URI<http://www.cloudbase.it/ws2012/> useful where there is a Windows Server 2012 Evaluation image available for download and it can be directly deployed to OpenStack. I was able to download and deploy the image in our ESSEX cloud and create a VM successfully out of the image.

I think a great tool would be Cloudbase's cloud-init for windows instances:
