New VMware Fling: View Pool Manager

ViewPoolManager_logoView Pool Manager allow Horizon View administrators to easily manage users across desktop pools and security groups in large deployments.

One of the of the biggest challenges View administrators face in large deployments is the desktop pool maintenance. Commonly each desktop pool has an Active Directory security groups with the correct amount of users a given desktop pool will support. As employees leave or join the organization the security groups become messy, requiring maintenance to ensure that the number of users in each group correctly match the amount of desktops available in each desktop pool.

This little tool will help administrators to save time adding, removing and maintaining users across desktop pools and security groups while helping to ensure that each security group does not contain more users than the amount desktops in the desktop pool.

The tool allow administrators to bind an Active Directory connection and specify:

  • Number of users per security group (based on View pool size)
  • Floating or Persistent deployment model
  • Source Security Groups (all users to be distributed to pools)
  • Destination Security Groups (All groups where users may be assigned to)

Why is this tool awesome?

Because View administrators do not have to waste hours adding, removing and maintaining users, desktop pools and security groups while ensuring each security group does not hold more users than the amount desktops in a given pool.
