You can quickly survey the status of the Horizon 7 and vSphere components in your Horizon 7 deployment by using the Horizon Administrator dashboard.

About this task

Horizon Administrator displays monitoring information about Connection Server instances, the event database, security servers, View Composer services, datastores, vCenter Server instances, and domains.


Horizon 7 cannot determine status information about Kerberos domains. Horizon Administrator displays Kerberos domain status as unknown, even when a domain is configured and working.


  1. In Horizon Administrator, click Dashboard.
  2. In the System Health pane, expand View components, vSphere components, or Other components.
    • A green up arrow indicates that a component has no problems.

    • A red down arrow indicates that a component is unavailable or not functioning.

    • A yellow double arrow indicates that a component is in a warning state.

    • A question mark indicates that the status of a component is unknown.

  3. Click a component name.

    A dialog displays the name, version, status, and other component information.

What to do next

Use vCenter Server to monitor any Virtual SAN clusters and the disks that participate in a Virtual SAN datastore. For more information about monitoring Virtual SAN in vSphere 5.5 Update 1, see the vSphere Storage document and the vSphere Monitoring and Performance documentation. For more information about monitoring Virtual SAN in vSphere 6 or later, see the Administering VMware Virtual SAN document.
