When you disable provisioning in an automated desktop pool, Horizon 7 stops provisioning new virtual machines for the pool. After you disable provisioning, you can enable provisioning again.

Before you change a desktop pool's configuration, you can disable provisioning to ensure that no new machines are created with the old configuration. You also can disable provisioning to prevent Horizon 7 from using additional storage when a pool is close to filling up the available space.


  1. In Horizon Console, select Inventory > Desktops.
  2. Select a desktop pool and change the status of the pool.
    Option Action
    Disable provisioning Select Disable Provisioning from the Status drop-down menu.
    Enable provisioning Select Enable Provisioning from the Status drop-down menu.
  3. Click OK.
