New Amazing Fling: View Pool Manager

This post has already been read 4264 times!

View Pool Manager is a Fling that allows VMware View administrators to easily manage users across desktop pools and security groups.

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

VMware View Pool Manager allows VMware View administrators to easily manage users across desktop pools and security groups for large deployments.
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)

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.
