To create a manual desktop pool, View provisions desktops from existing machines. You select a separate machine for each desktop in the pool.
View can use several types of machines in manual pools:
- Virtual machines that are managed by vCenter Server
- Virtual machines that run on a virtualization platform other than vCenter Server
- Physical computers
For information about creating a manual desktop pool that uses Linux virtual machines, see the Setting Up Horizon 7 for Linux Desktops guide.
