After you initialize and configure a Cloud Pod Architecture environment, you should perform certain steps to verify that your environment is set up properly.

Prerequisites

  • Install the latest version of Horizon Client on a supported computer or mobile device.

  • Verify that you have credentials for a user in one of your newly created global entitlements.

Procedure

  1. Launch Horizon Client.
  2. Connect to any View Connection Server instance in the pod federation by using the credentials of a user in one of your newly created global entitlements.

    After you connect to the View Connection Server instance, the global entitlement name should appear in the list of available desktop pools.

  3. Select the global entitlement and connect to a desktop.

Results

A desktop should launch successfully. Exactly which desktop launches depends on the individual configuration of the global entitlement, pods, and desktop pools. As a general rule, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature attempts to allocate a desktop from the pod to which you are connected.

What to do next

If the global entitlement does not appear when you connect to the View Connection Server instance, use the lmvutil command with the --listUserEntitlements, --listGroupEntitlements, and --listAssociatedPools options to verify that the entitlement is configured correctly. If the global entitlement appears but the desktop does not launch, all desktop pools might be fully assigned to other users.
