After you deploy your Horizon Edge Gateway and Unified Access Gateway instances, create DNS records that match the FQDNs on the Unified Access Gateway instances.

Perform this task after you deploy the Horizon Edge Gateway and Unified Access Gateway instances. See Deploying a Microsoft Azure Edge.

Note: If you have more than one Unified Access Gateway cluster, configure the DNS server for all non-peered VNets.

Configuring the DNS server for all non-peered VNets also applies in the future if you create more pool groups where you must specify the subnet.

Prerequisites

Obtain the following IP addresses and FQDNs using the Horizon Universal Console. For example, select Resources > Capacity, click the name of the Horizon Edge Gateway instance you want to configure, and note the corresponding IP addresses and FQDNs as follows.

In the Unified Access Gateway section, obtain the load balancer IP addresses and the FQDN associated with the Unified Access Gateway instance. The list includes labels for the load balancer type or types you configured when you deployed the Horizon Edge Gateway instance. If you configured both an internal and external load balancer, the corresponding load-balancer related labels appear in the Unified Access Gateway section.

Label Description
Load Balancer IP Public (external) load balancer IP address
Private Load Balancer IP Internal load balancer IP address
FQDN The FQDN of the Unified Access Gateway instances.

This FQDN can be used for both internal and external load balancer IP addresses.

Procedure

  1. For Unified Access Gateway, perform the appropriate step that follows, depending on your load-balancer configuration:
    • If you selected External access over the internet

      Create a DNS record and use the FQDN to point to the public IP address of the external load balancer in the Unified Access Gateway configuration.

    • If you selected Internal access over a corporate network

      reate a DNS record and use the FQDN to point to the private IP address of the internal load balancer in the Unified Access Gateway configuration.

      This private load balancer IP address is in the desktop (tenant) subnet you selected while deploying the Unified Access Gateway cluster.

    • If you selected Internal and external access

      In your internal DNS, map the Unified Access Gateway FQDN to the private IP address of the internal load balancer.

      Also, in your external DNS, map the Unified Access Gateway FQDN to the public IP address of the external load balancer.

  2. Verify any updates that you make.
