The Administration Console is a Web interface provided by the cloud service. You use an industry standard browser to log in to the interface. Some details of the login steps vary depending on the configuration of your specific environment.

About this task

You first log in using the My VMware credentials of a My VMware account that has access permissions to your environment. The windows that display after the My VMware login window vary depending on the state of the nodes associated with the My VMware account.

Environment

Window Displayed After the My VMware Login Window

What to Do Next

First node not yet deployed.

Getting Started wizard and the Capacity section

Deploy a node. For detailed steps, see Getting Started with VMware Horizon Cloud Service on Microsoft Azure.

At least one node deployed, but no Active Directory domain joined.

Getting Started wizard and the General Setup section

Perform the domain join procedure and assign the super administration role to a user, as described in Register Your Horizon Cloud Node's First Active Directory Domain.

At least one Active Directory domain joined.

Active Directory login window displaying the name of the joined domain.

Log in using credentials for an account in the joined domain.

Multiple Active Directory domains joined.

Active Directory login window with a domain selection list.

Select a listed domain and log in using credentials for an account in the selected domain.

Prerequisites

Verify that you have the credentials of a My VMware account that is associated with the environment.

When an Active Directory domain is already joined, verify that you have the credentials for an Active Directory account in that domain that has access permissions.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the cloud service at https://cloud.horizon.vmware.com.
  2. Log in with your My VMware credentials.
  3. Depending on the options presented to you in the next window, complete the log-in sequence appropriate for your configured environment.

    If the environment associated with the My VMware account has a joined Active Directory domain, the Active Directory login window appears and you must log in with Active Directory credentials.

Results

The Administration Console appears.

Note:

If you mistype the Active Directory user name or password, the system re-displays the My VMware login screen. In this situation, you have to go through the My VMware login screen again to get to the Active Directory login screen and try again.

What to do next

If applicable, register the Active Directory and finish the domain join. See Register Your Horizon Cloud Node's First Active Directory Domain. You must finish the entire Active Directory registration process before you can work with any other services.
