Welcome to my VMware Horizon series. In this session I will describe how I setup an RDS Desktop Pool. This pool will be deployed in my newly created RDS Farm.
Select Desktop Pools from the menu on the left, Add
In this session, I select RDS Desktop Pool, Next
I give my new desktop pool an ID, description and a display name, this is what the users will see in their client, Next
I adjust the desktop pool settings, Next
For this desktop pool I will use my RdsFarm01, Next
I 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 RDS desktop pool is now ready for the test-users
The users will now be able to login to the RDS Desktop pool from the Horizon portal
Both my test-users are now logged in the same server in the RDS farm
