You can change and update some of the cloud-related characteristics for your Horizon Cloud tenant's cloud-connected pods by using the Capacity page's Edit workflow in the Horizon Universal Console.

Attention: As described in Tour of the Cloud-Based Horizon Universal Console, the console is dynamic and reflects features that are appropriate for the up-to-the-minute configuration of your tenant environment. Access to features described in this documentation can depend on factors including, and not limited to:
  • Whether the feature depends on system code available only in the latest Horizon Cloud pod manifest, Horizon pod version, or Horizon Cloud Connector version.
  • Whether access to the feature is in Limited Availability, as stated in the Release Notes at the feature's debut.
  • Whether the feature requires specific licensing or SKUs.

When you see mention of a feature in this documentation and you do not see that feature in the console, first check the Release Notes to see if the feature's access is limited and the way you can request enablement in your tenant. Alternatively, when you believe you are entitled to use a feature that is described in this documentation and you do not see it in the console, you can ask your VMware Horizon Cloud Service representative or, if you do not have a representative, you can file a service request (SR) to the Horizon Cloud Service team as described in How to file a Support Request in Customer Connect (VMware KB 2006985).

Because of the console's dynamic nature, in your live environment, you might see entries and labels that are variations of the ones described here. If supported in your tenant's current configuration, the following items can be changed using the Edit Pod workflow:

  • Pod name and description
  • Location associated with the pod
  • Pod's gateway-related characteristics

The locations that the console displays are based on world city names. The system uses the cities' geographic coordinates to place icons representing your pods on the interactive map on the console's Dashboard page. When you want to change a pod's associated geographic location to one that is not listed in the location-related drop-down list, you start typing the name of a city in the relevant entry field.

Note: You must select a city from the system's autocomplete list. Currently, due to a known issue, the location names are not localized.

Procedure

  1. In the console, navigate to the Capacity page by clicking Settings > Capacity.
  2. Start the Edit Pod workflow by selecting the pod, and clicking Edit.
  3. In the Edit Pod window, follow the guidance below and the on-screen guidance depending on what type of cloud-connected pod you selected. If the on-screen guidance is different than what is described below, the on-screen guidance takes precedence.
    Type Description
    Horizon pod Use the fields and controls in the wizard's Pod Setup step to make your updates. If you want to change the pod's associated geographic location to one that is not listed in the Pod Location drop-down list, select New and click the drop-down list to get an entry box in which to start typing the location name you want.

    To update gateway-related items such as the pod's external FQDN, use the fields and controls in the Gateway Settings step. Follow the on-screen guidance.

    Horizon Cloud pod in Microsoft Azure Use the fields and controls in the Pod Details step to make your updates and save your changes to the system. If you want to change the pod's associated geographic location to one that is not listed in the Location drop-down list, click Edit, type the name of the location you want into the City Name field, and save it into the field.

    To update gateway-related items such as the pod's external gateway FQDN and upload a certificate that matches that FQDN, use the fields and controls in the Gateway Settings step. Follow the on-screen guidance.

  4. Save your changes and exit out of the wizard, clicking Next as needed until you see the appropriate buttons to save and exit out of the wizard.
