You can add or edit appliances for a tenant on the Appliances tab.
To add primary and secondary desktop managers, perform the following steps:
- Click the Add Appliances link.
- On the Tenant Install page, enter information for primary and secondary Desktop Manager appliances. Enter names that are indicative of the role of these appliances (for example <initials>-<dc#>-<dmgr#>), then enter the IP Address, Start Date, and Start Time. Set Start Time to 00:00.
- Click Create Appliances.
- To check the status of provisioning the Desktop Managers, select appliances > reservations.
- When provisioning is finished, select service grid > resources and select Desktop Managers.
Add compute resources for each desktop manager and network as described in Desktop Managers.
- Only compute resources not associated with any existing appliance or user desktop can be assigned to a newly provisioned desktop manager.
- The desktop manager must be associated with the tenant network that requires expansion.
- Select Tenants and click the Edit button to edit the tenant.
- Select the Quotas tab.
- Under Desktop Capacity, select a data center and a desktop model.
The Desktop Collection drop-down menu displays.
- Select a Capacity Model Collection from the Desktop Collection drop-down menu, and then click Update.
- Under Template Quota, select the data center, set desired Template Quota value, and then click Update.
- Create a desktop template VM and deploy it on the compute resource defined previously. Failure to do so can cause the agent to set up incorrectly or cause image creation to fail.
Edit an Appliance
You can edit an appliance to correct errors made during the initial installation or to reflect subsequent changes in the underlying network infrastructure.
To edit an appliance:
- Click the Edit button next to the appliance. The appliance configuration page displays.
- Update values as described in the following table.
Section Field Description Primary Appliance Name A user-friendly name. IP Address IP address of the primary appliance in an HA pair. This address must be within the range specified by the subnet mask. First Backbone IP Address Primary address for backbone. Second Backbone IP Address Secondary (bind) address for backbone. Secondary Appliance Name IP address of the secondary appliance in an HA pair. This address must be within the range specified by the subnet mask. IP Address A user-friendly name. First Backbone IP Address Primary address for backbone. Second Backbone IP Address Secondary (bind) address for backbone. Floating IP Address IP address used for high-availability so that if one of the appliances in an HA pair is down, the same IP address works for the other. Both appliances can be accessed using one IP address. Subnet Mask A 32-bit number. Applying the subnet mask to an IP address splits the address into two parts, an extended network address and a host address. DNS servers IP address of the Directory Name Server. DNS Search Suffix Suffix added to create the DNS name. Schedule Update Start Date Scheduled date for the update of the primary and secondary appliances. Start Time Scheduled time for the update of the primary and secondary appliances. Wait approximately 30-60 minutes for the system to update your tenant appliance.
- Click Update to make the changes. You can check the status of the update on the screen. The update takes from three to five minutes (the time it takes for the services to be restarted).
