Contrary to popular belief, you don’t actually need vCenter and ESX(i) to use View. If you want to utilize VMs from other platforms as your desktops you need to change one thing when installing the agent onto those VMs.
Install the agent by going to cmd and type the following in the location of where the agent install package is:
Note that this is case-sensitive and there is no space between the /V and the ”VMD_VC_MANAGED_Agent=0”.
During the install it will ask which connection broker that the agent should connect to. If you have multiple View Manager servers, just pick one. This will add it to the ADAM directory schema and then can use VMs on non-vCenter virtual platforms.
