You can change the image of an instant-clone desktop pool to push out changes or to revert to a previous image. You can select any snapshot from any virtual machine to be the new image.

Procedure

  1. In Horizon Administrator, select Catalog > Desktop Pools
  2. Double-click the pool ID.
  3. Select Push Image > Schedule.

    The Schedule Push Image window opens.

  4. Follow the prompts.

    You can schedule the task to start immediately or sometime in the future. For clones with user sessions, you can specify whether to force the users to log out or to wait. When the users log out, Horizon 7 recreates the clones.

  5. On the Ready to Complete page, click Show Details to see the list of desktops in the pool.

Results

After you initiate this operation, publishing of the new image starts immediately. For more information about publishing, see "Instant-Clone Desktop Pools" in the Setting Up Virtual Desktops in Horizon 7 document. Recreating the clones starts at the time that you specify in the Schedule Push Image wizard.
