When you disable an RDS host, Horizon 7 no longer uses it to host new RDS desktops or applications. Users can continue to use RDS desktops and applications that are currently open.


  1. In Horizon Administrator, select Resources > Farms.
  2. Double-click the pool ID of a farm.
  3. Select the RDS Hosts tab.
  4. Select an RDS host and click More Commands.
  5. Click Enable or Disable.
  6. Click OK.


If you enable the RDS host, a check mark appears in the Enabled column, and Available appears in the Status column. If you disable the RDS host, the Enabled column is empty and Disabled appears in the Status column.
