When you use Dell EMC VxRail as the hyper-converged infrastructure for your Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure deployment, you can use the Dell EMC VxRail marketplace to install and configure the Horizon Air Link appliance. When the appliance is deployed and powered on, you use it to connect to the VMware hosted service, Horizon Cloud, and begin the Horizon Cloud Node configuration process.

      If you use DHCP to configure the Horizon Air Link, leave the IP address, Netmask, Default Gateway, and DNS Server text boxes blank. If a proxy server is required to reach the Internet, provide the proxy server settings.

    4. Click Install.

      A Horizon Air Link instance is installed and the name you provided for it is listed on the Market page under the Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure option.
