In this step, you must specify the data center network that will be used for the actual desktop pools to which end users connect.

About this task

If you selected the Connect from anywhere option in a previous wizard step, you must also provide a DMZ network configuration. The servers created for the VDI infrastructure will be installed in the environment's existing management network and the virtual desktops will be installed on the data center network.

Important:

Ensure that the configuration for the data center network, the DMZ network configuration, and the environment's management network meets the networking prerequisites described in Create a VDI Workload Domain. If not all of the networking prerequisites are met prior to completing the wizard, the creation workflow might fail.

Prerequisites

Verify that you have met the networking prerequisites as described in Create a VDI Workload Domain.

Procedure

  1. On the Network Configuration: Data Center step, specify the data center network configuration to use for this VDI workload domain.
    • Select one of the existing configurations that are already in place in your installation. During ongoing operations, data center network configurations can be saved using the Settings > Network Settings > Data Center screen.

    • Click Custom Configuration and provide a network configuration to be used for this VDI environment.

    If you selected to use the Active Directory domain External option in a previous wizard step, ensure that your external DHCP is installed and reachable by broadcast from your selected network configuration.

  2. Proceed to the next step by clicking Next.
  3. If you selected Connect from anywhere in a previous wizard step, you must provide a DMZ network configuration by selecting an existing configuration or by selecting Custom Configuration and providing a new configuration to be used for this environment.
  4. Proceed to the next step by clicking Next.
