Release date: March 14th 2019

Welcome to my VMware Horizon series. In this session I will describe how to create a manual RDS Farm with an existing RDS-server.

Log into Horizon View Administrator, from the menu on the left, click Resource – Farms



Click Add… from the top menu



Choose «Manual Farm», Next



Give the Farm a descriptive ID and Description, configure the Farm settings as needed, Next.



Select the RDS Host we prepared previously for this session, Next.



Click Finish to complete this wizard and create the new Farm.



The new RDS Farm is created and available in Horizon View Administrator



Once the RDS-Farm is created, I proceed with setting up an RDS Desktop Pool, posted here: VMware Horizon – Create RDS Desktop Pool for existing RDS-server
