VMware Horizon – Setup RDS Application Pool

Release date: March 18th 2019

Welcome to my VMware Horizon series. In this session I will describe how I setup an RDS Application Pool. This pool will be deployed in my newly created RDS Farm.

Select Application Pools from the menu on the left, Add



I select the RDS farm «RdsFarm01», and choose to publish Paint and Snipping Tool. I make sure Pre-launch is selected, Next


Read more about the Pre-launch feature from VMware here: Enable the Application Pre-Launch Feature in Horizon Client


I don’t adjust ID or Display Name at this time, but tick «Entitle users after this wizard finishes», Finish



Click Add… to open the «Find Users or Groups»-wizard



I search for my test users group, View_Users, and adds this, OK



Entitlements done, Close



My new application pools are now ready for my test-users



The users will now be able to launch the applications from the Horizon portal





VMware Horizon planning, deployment etc.
