You use the Getting Started wizard to perform the configuration steps that are needed before you can fully manage and use the environment, such as registering an Active Directory domain. The Getting Started wizard displays by default when you log in to the Administration Console for the first time.

After you have finished registering one Active Directory domain, then you can perform administration tasks using the Administration Console, as well as register additional Active Directory domains, as appropriate for your organization's needs.

The Getting Started wizard provides a high-level overview of the work that you have done, and what is still to do. You can access the wizard at any time by clicking the Getting Started wizard icon icon in the top right corner of the page.

Note:

To ensure that you completed all tasks required to run and manage the environment, review the steps in Suggested Workflow for a Horizon Cloud Node in Microsoft Azure and its subtopics. You cannot perform certain tasks from the Getting Started wizard, such as uploading certificates.

When you have completed the required steps of registering at least one Active Directory domain and giving the Super Administrator role to an AD user group, displaying the wizard is optional. To toggle having the wizard appear every time you log in to the Administration Console, move the slider at the bottom of the wizard's main page to Yes.

Note:

Even though the wizard's primary use occurs during your first time setting up a node and most people toggle the wizard off after that, some people find the wizard might be a convenient launching point when performing some of the standard tasks.
