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.

About this task

Once a pool is provisioned, you cannot edit the vGPU profile by editing the pool or changing the image of the pool. When you push a new image to an instant clone pool, you must verify that the new image has the same vGPU profile as the previous image, or your push image operation might fail. To change the vGPU profile of an instant clone pool, you must delete the pool and create a new pool with the desired vGPU profile.

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. Recreating the clones starts at the time that you specify in the Schedule Push Image wizard.
