VMware Horizon – Setup RDS Desktop Pool

Release date: March 18th 2019

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




VMware Horizon planning, deployment etc.
