To keep your View components available and running, you can perform a variety of maintenance tasks. Backing Up and Restoring View Configuration DataYou can back up your View and View Composer configuration data by scheduling or running automatic backups in View Administrator. You can restore your View configuration by manually importing the backed-up View LDAP files and View Composer database files. Monitor View ComponentsYou can quickly survey the status of the View and vSphere components in your View deployment by using the View Administrator dashboard. Monitor Machine StatusYou can quickly survey the status of machines in your View deployment by using the View Administrator dashboard. For example, you can display all disconnected machines or machines that are in maintenance mode. Understanding View ServicesThe operation of View Connection Server instances and security servers depends on several services that run on the system. These systems are started and stopped automatically, but you might sometimes find it necessary to adjust the operation of these services manually. Change the Product License KeyIf the current license on a system expires, or if you want to access View features that are currently unlicensed, you can use View Administrator to change the product license key. Monitoring Product License UsageIn View Administrator, you can monitor the active users who are concurrently connected to View. The Product Licensing and Usage page displays the current and highest historical usage numbers. You can use these numbers to keep track of your product license usage. You can also reset the historical usage data and start over with the current data. Update General User Information from Active DirectoryYou can update View with the current user information that is stored in Active Directory. This feature updates the name, phone, email, user name, and default Windows domain of View users. The trusted external domains are also updated. Migrate View Composer to Another MachineIn some situations, you might need to migrate a VMware Horizon View Composer service to a new Windows Server virtual or physical machine. For example, you might migrate View Composer and vCenter Server to a new ESXi host or cluster to expand your View deployment. In addition, View Composer and vCenter Server do not have to be installed on the same Windows Server machine. Update the Certificates on a View Connection Server Instance, Security Server, or View ComposerWhen you receive updated server SSL certificates or intermediate certificates, you import the certificates into the Windows local computer certificate store on each View Connection Server, security server, or View Composer host. Information Collected by the Customer Experience Improvement ProgramYou can participate in a customer experience improvement program (CEIP). If you participate in the program, VMware collects anonymous data about your deployment in order to improve VMware's response to customer requirements. VMware uses this information to improve the quality, reliability, and performance of our products. No data that identifies your organization is collected.
