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"
