Clarify Teams installation on RDS 2019

SDS 216 Reputation points


what is the correct way to install Teams using RDS2019 with FSLogix Disks?

Should I use per-machine oder per-user installation? So which of these commands should be used?

"msiexec /i <path_to_msi> /l*v <install_logfile_name> ALLUSER=1 ALLUSERS=1"

"msiexec /i <path_to_msi> /l*v <install_logfile_name> ALLUSERS=1"

We use redirection.xml of FSLogix to prevent profile bloat with teams.

We have so many strange problems occuring randomly with the missing Outlook-AddIn, Outlook not starting because of Teams, Teams not starting, login window not showing, Teams working just on the first session host the user was connected to, etc. We are using various scripts to delete specific folders out of the teams folders in appdata, but we can not find a good and constant solution.

Thank you!

    Hi @Marianne Harding

    Either of these two commands will work for you. Deciding on which approach to use depends on whether you use a persistent or non-persistent setup and the associated functionality needs of your organization. For persistent setup, Teams supports both per-user and per-machine installation. For a non-persistent setup, the Teams desktop app must be installed per-machine.

    In addition, using Teams in a non-persistent setup also requires a profile-caching manager, for efficient Teams runtime data synchronization. For more details about deploying Teams, you can learn it from:
