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.
When provisioning is disabled in a linked-clone pool, Horizon 7 stops new machines from being provisioned and stops machines from being customized after they are recomposed or rebalanced.
- In Horizon Administrator, select .
- Select a desktop pool and change the status of the pool.
