Determine appropriate Active Directory configuration for the design
Active Directory configuration is relatively simple with VMware View.
AD can apply View specific polices using GPO. GPO is able to configure all desktops created by View connection server.
Firstly, it is highly recommended that you create dedicated OUs for View desktops, View servers and View specific user/service accounts. The View connection server includes administrative templates for managing View virtual desktops, servers and clients. These administrative templates can be imported and applied using GPO to to the respective OUs for these components.
Establish DNS/DHCP configuration
Both of these are fairly self explanatory really, and not too sure they need delving into. As we know, DNS is crucial for any environment. It’s important to remember that when a pool of desktops is removed or a recompose task is initiated then DNS records may become stale. It’s well worth reviewing the DNS scavenging settings within AD to ensure the operations are completed within a timely manner.
With DHCP, other than ensuring you have enough DHCP scopes to satisfy all your desktops, it worth reducing the lease time especially with floating desktops. Real world experience shows that an 8 hour lease should suffice.
Determine appropriate firewall rules for View components
