Perform the tasks below to configure an account in the vCenter for Horizon DaaS to manage the virtual resources via the vSphere API.

  • Discover one or more vCenter servers for Tenant desktops.

  • Assign one of these vCenters to the Tenant Desktop Manager via the Service Center Service Grid. There is a limit of 1 vCenter per Desktop Manager.


You can use the same vCenter for both your management appliances and tenant desktops or you can use separate vCenters for each.


The datastores configured on each vSphere ESXi or cluster within a vCenter Datacenter must be the same. Shared storage is required for desktop VMs. In order for this to work properly, datastores must be created and mapped to the same LUNs on all the desktop hosts for a particular tenant with the same datastore name (case sensitive).
