You can use virtual machines managed by vCenter Server to provision and deploy remote desktops. You can use a virtual machine managed by vCenter Server as a template for an automated pool, a parent for a linked-clone pool, or a machine in a manual pool. You must prepare virtual machines to deliver remote desktop access.

For information about preparing machines that are used as Remote Desktop Services (RDS) hosts, see Setting Up Remote Desktop Services Hosts.

For information about preparing Linux virtual machines for remote desktop deployment, see the Setting Up Horizon 6 for Linux Desktops guide.
