  • A View, Horizon 6, or Horizon 7 deployment on premises.

While deploying the on-premise components, ensure that the connector can communicate with the View Connection Server instances.

All communication between the VMware Identity Manager service and the on-premise components is through the connector. The connector and the service communicate over a communication channel that is automatically set up during installation.
