A home site is the relationship between a user or group and a Cloud Pod Architecture site. Home sites ensure that users always receive desktops and applications from a particular datacenter, even when they are traveling. Creating home sites is optional.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  • To create a home site for a user, run the lmvutil command with the --createUserHomeSite option.

    You can run the command on any View Connection Server instance in the pod federation.

     lmvutil --createUserHomeSite --userName domain\username --siteName name [--entitlementName name]

    Option

    Description

    --userName

    Name of the user. Use the format domain\username.

    --siteName

    Name of the site to associate with the user as the home site.

    --entitlementName

    (Optional) Name of a global entitlement to associate with the home site. When a user selects the specified global entitlement, the home site overrides the user's own home site. If you do not specify this option, the command creates a global user home site.

    For example:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain domainEast --authPassword "*" --createUserHomeSite --userName example\adminEast --siteName "Eastern Region" --entitlementName "Agent Sales"
  • To create a home site for a group, run the lmvutil command with the --createGroupHomeSite option.

    You can run the command on any View Connection Server instance in the pod federation.

    lmvutil --createGroupHomeSite --userName domain\username --siteName name [--entitlementName name]

    Option

    Description

    --groupName

    Name of the group. Use the format domain\groupname.

    --siteName

    Name of the site to associate with the group as the home site.

    --entitlementName

    (Optional) Name of a global entitlement to associate with the home site. When a user selects the specified global entitlement, the home site overrides the user's own home site. If you do not specify this option, the command creates a global group home site.

    For example:

    lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain domainEast --authPassword "*" 
    --createGroupHomeSite --groupName example\adminEastGroup --siteName "Eastern Region" 
    --entitlementName "Agent Sales"
