The restricted entitlements feature uses tag matching to determine whether a View Connection Server instance can access a particular desktop pool.
At the most basic level, tag matching determines that a View Connection Server instance with a specific tag can access a desktop pool that has the same tag.
The absence of tag assignments can also affect whether a View Connection Server instance can access a desktop pool. For example, View Connection Server instances that do not have any tags can only access desktop pools that also do not have any tags.
Table 1 shows how the restricted entitlement feature determines when a View Connection Server can access a desktop pool.
|View Connection Server||Desktop Pool||Access Permitted?|
|No tags||No tags||Yes|
|No tags||One or more tags||No|
|One or more tags||No tags||Yes|
|One or more tags||One or more tags||Only when tags match|
The restricted entitlements feature only enforces tag matching. You must design your network topology to force certain clients to connect through a particular View Connection Server instance.
