Configuring the VMware View

To configure the VMware View

  1. If you checked the Config VMware View checkbox on the Clone Target window of the Symantec Quick Clone Virtual Machine Wizard, the VMware View Configuration window appears.

    See Specifying where to create the virtual machine clones.

  2. In the VMware View Configuration window, enter information in the appropriate fields to import cloned virtual machines as a new Desktop Pool in the VMware View.

    Server Name/IP Address

    Specify the name of the server or IP address for the server for importing cloned virtual machines.

    Note:

    You must log on to the vCenter Server using the same IP address or a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) that the VMware View Server uses to access the vCenter Server for successful integration of the cloned virtual machines into the VMware View Server.

    Username

    Specify the user name for the VMware administrator.

    You must enter a user name.

    Password

    Specify the password for the server for importing the cloned virtual machines.

    You must enter a password.

    Domain

    Specify the domain for importing the cloned virtual machines.

    Note:

    To be accessed by the VMware View Server, virtual machines must be joined to a domain. The Symantec Quick Clone Virtual Machine Wizard can automatically join virtual machine clones to the domain entered on the VMware View Configuration window. This operation requires that both Customize the guest OS and Config VMware View are checked on the Clone Target window.

    See Specifying where to create the virtual machine clones.

    Pool ID

    Specify the pool ID for importing the cloned virtual machines.

    You must enter a pool ID.

    Pool Persistence

    Specify if you want persistent pools by checking this checkbox.

    Pool persistence indicates if users are allocated a dedicated desktop. This option statically assigns the desktop to a user on the first connection. All user documents, applications, and settings are retained between sessions.

  3. Click Next.

    See Verifying the virtual machine clones.
