You can add a desktop pool to an existing global entitlement. You can add a particular desktop pool to only one global entitlement.

Prerequisites

  • Create the desktop pool to add to the global entitlement. For information about creating desktop pools, see the Setting Up Desktop and Application Pools in View document.

  • Become familiar with the lmvutil command authentication options and requirements and verify that you have sufficient privileges to run the lmvutil command. See lmvutil Command Authentication.

Procedure

On the View Connection Server instance in the pod that contains the desktop pool to add to the global entitlement, run the lmvutil command with the --addPoolAssociation option.

Repeat the command for each desktop pool that you want to add to the global entitlement.

Important:

You must run this command on a View Connection Server instance in the pod that contains the desktop pool to add to the global entitlement.

lmvutil --addPoolAssociation --entitlementName name --poolId poolid

Option

Description

--entitlementName

Specifies the name of the global entitlement to which to add the desktop pool. The name must match the name of an existing global entitlement.

--poolId

Specifies the ID of the desktop pool to add to the global entitlement. The pool ID must match the desktop pool name as it appears on the pod.

For example:

lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain domainEast --authPassword "*" --addPoolAssociation --entitlementName "Agent Sales" --poolId "Sales B"

Results

The Cloud Pod Architecture feature stores the global entitlement in the Global Data Layer, which replicates the global entitlement on every pod in the pod federation. When an entitled user uses Horizon Client to connect to a desktop, the global entitlement name appears in the list of available desktop pools.

When you add a desktop pool to a global entitlement, View checks to make sure that the desktop pool's default display protocol, protocol override, and virtual machine reset policies support the equivalent policies set for the global entitlement.

If a View administrator changes the pool-level display protocol or protocol override policy after a pool is associated with a global entitlement, users can receive a desktop launch error when they select the global entitlement. If a View administrator changes the pool-level virtual machine reset policy after a pool is associated with the global entitlement, users can receive an error if they try to reset the virtual machine.
