Great news on myvirtualcloud.net. Andre has published a new article on his blog talking about a new tool which can manage VMware View pools. This is just a sneak peek. His aim is to release the tools as a Fling, but this must be approved first be the VMware Fling committee.
This tool allow administrators to bind an Active Directory connection and specify:
* How many users there should exist per group (based on VMware View pool size) * Floating or Persistent deployment * Source Security Groups (all users to be distributed to pools) * Destination Security Groups (All groups the users may be assigned to)
Technicalities: Floating deployment does not take in consideration if user has a persistent desktop. Persistent deployment ensures users are kept within the same security group and desktop pool they have previously been assigned to.
