00222,09 2011/06/03 12:52:00.369 3 pstacuser dsTermServ.exe dsTermServProxy p2712 tCC8 dsWorkerThread.cpp:1006 - 'DSPORTMAPCONNECTION' [conn=02ac6190] connection failed for host, Software caused connection abort

VMware view event log:
User PSTAC-12\PSTACuser attempted an un-brokered connection to this machine and was not allowed due to view policy
The root cause of issue is due to the AllowDirectRDP=false parameter configured in the VMware Agent.

When AllowDirectRDP is set to false in the VM connection server, the direct access to the VDI pools is disallowed. The VM admin disables this option to force all the traffic to go through the Connection Server.
The VM admin has to enable the Direct connection to desktop option.
