If you selected Universal Broker as your tenant-wide connection broker, you can create assignments of VDI desktops that span multiple cloud-connected Horizon pods or that span multiple Horizon Cloud pods in Microsoft Azure. You can also create assignments of RDSH resources from pods in Microsoft Azure. When you entitle an assignment to your end users, Universal Broker searches for the best resources to fulfill users' connection requests based on the site configuration and resource availability.
For instructions on creating VDI desktop assignments in a Universal Broker environment, see the subtopics under this documentation topic.
The process for creating RDSH resource assignments in a Universal Broker environment is the same as the process in a Single-Pod Broker environment.
- For instructions on creating an assignment of RDSH session desktops, see Horizon Cloud Pods - Provide Desktop Sessions from RDS Hosts for Your End Users by Creating an RDS-Based Session Desktop Assignment.
- For instructions on creating an assignment of RDSH remote applications, see Remote Applications - Create a Remote Application Assignment for Remote Applications Provisioned By Horizon Cloud Pods in Microsoft Azure.
- You can only create assignments of RDSH session desktops or remote applications from Horizon Cloud pods in Microsoft Azure. This release of Universal Broker does not support assignments of RDSH resources from Horizon pods (based on Horizon Connection Server technology)
- When creating an assignment of RDSH resources, you can include session desktops from only a single Horizon Cloud pod in Microsoft Azure. This release does not support assignments of session desktops that span multiple Horizon Cloud pods in Microsoft Azure.
