You can add or edit appliances for a tenant on the Appliances tab.

Add Appliances

To add primary and secondary Desktop Managers, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the Add Appliances link.

  2. On the Tenant Install page, enter information for primary and secondary Desktop Manager appliances. Specify names that are indicative of the role of these appliances (for example <initials>-<dc#>-<dmgr#>) along with the IP Address, Start Date and Start Time. Set Start Time to 00:00.

  3. Click Create Appliances.

  4. Select appliances > reservations to check the status of provisioning the Desktop Managers.

  5. When provisioning is complete, select service grid > resources and select Desktop Managers.

  6. Add compute resources for each desktop manager and network(s) as described in Desktop Managers.

    • Only compute resources not associated with any existing appliance or user desktop can be assigned to a newly provisioned desktop manager.

    • The desktop manager should be associated with the tenant network that requires expansion.

  7. If you have not yet created a Standard Capacity, create one now as described in Desktop Capacity and Model Definition.

  8. Select Tenants and click the Edit button to edit the tenant

  9. Select the Quotas tab.

  10. Under Desktop Capacity, select the new desktop manager and a standard capacity not being used by another desktop manager in the tenant, and then set desired Capacity value.

  11. Under Template Quota, set desired Template Quota value.

  12. Create a desktop template VM and deploy it on the compute resource defined above. Failure to do this will either not allow the DaaS Agent to setup correctly OR not allow the image to be created.

Edit Appliances

You can edit appliances if you need to correct errors made during the initial installation or to reflect subsequent changes in the underlying network infrastructure.

To edit an appliance:

  1. Click the Edit Appliances link. The appliance configuration page displays.

  2. Update values as described below.



    Primary Appliance IP Address

    This is the IP address of the primary appliance in an HA pair. This address must be within the range specified by the subnet mask.

    Primary Appliance Name

    A user friendly name.

    Secondary Appliance IP Address

    This is the IP address of the secondary appliance in an HA pair. This address must be within the range specified by the subnet mask.

    Secondary Appliance Name

    A user friendly name.

    Floating IP Address

    The floating IP address is for used for high-availability so that if one of the appliances in an HA pair is down, the same IP address will work for the other. Both appliances can be accessed using one IP address.

    Subnet Mask

    A 32-bit number. Applying the subnet mask to an IP address splits the address into two parts, an extended network address and a host address.

    DNS server

    The IP address of the Directory Name Server.

    Start Date and Start Time

    The scheduled time for the update of the primary and secondary appliances. Wait approximately 30-60 minutes for the system to update your tenant appliance.

  3. Click Update to make the changes. You can check the status of the update on the appliances > reservations screen. The update should take from three to five minutes (the time it takes for the services to be restarted).
