Several configuration tasks are required for adding physical machines and non-vSphere virtual machines, such as those you can create with Citrix XenServer, Microsoft HyperV, or VMware Workstation, to manual unmanaged desktop pools.

After you satisfy the requirements listed in Prerequisites for Adding Unmanaged Machines to Pools you must complete the following tasks:

  1. Enable Windows Remote Management, set remote execution policies, add the Orchestrator server as a trusted host, and enable communication with the PowerShell plug-in. For instructions, see Configure a Physical Machine for an Unmanaged Pool.

  2. Configure the Orchestrator server to use Kerberos authentication. For instructions, see Configure vRealize Orchestrator to Use Kerberos Authentication with Physical Machines.

  3. Either run the Add Physical Machines to Pool workflow, available in the Workflows/Example folder, or else run the Register Machines to Pool workflow and run the PowerShell workflows described in Run Workflows to Add Physical Machines as PowerShell Hosts.
