Error: Access denied.

Probable Cause: Incorrect password OR you are not accepting the 2FA prompts.

Resolution: Verify you are entering the same UNID and password used for CIS. Then, after clicking "Login" you will see the following screen awaiting your 2FA acceptance prompt.


Error: Loading Failed ( system adminitrator)

Probable Cause: Either you logged out very recently and the desktop has not completed the logout and reset process, -OR- all available desktops had just been logged into. This should not be a common problem, however when you receive this error, Horizon is in the process of preparing a desktop for you.

Resolution: Wait a few minutes then click "Try Again" located in the upper right of the window.
