In the first-time configuration for a Horizon Cloud Node, you use the choices in the General Setup section to configure the initial Active Directory domain settings, assign roles and permissions to Administration Console users, and configure one or more file shares to use for master image OVAs and the AppStacks that are generated by the AppCapture tool. After the first-time configuration, you can use the choices in the General Setup section to edit the initially configured Active Directory domain, refine the assigned roles, or navigate to the Locations page to work with the file shares.

Description

Active Directory

Register the initial Active Directory domain and add domain bind and domain join information. Domain registration of at least one Active Directory domain is required in order to give roles and permissions to Administration Console users or assign services to users. You must register an Active Directory domain and complete the domain join before you can perform other operations with the associated Horizon Cloud Node or register additional Active Directory domains. For information about tasks related to Active Directory and your Horizon Cloud Node, see:

Roles & Permissions

Assign roles to users who will be managing the environment. A role grants its associated permissions to the users given that role. See Assign Roles to Users for Administration Console Access.

FileShare Location

Register one or more CIFS shares where you will copy the master image OVAs and the AppStacks that are generated by the AppCapture tool.
