Horizon Console provides a Web-based management interface for VMware Horizon 8.
Horizon Connection Server can have multiple instances that also serve as replica servers. Typically a Connection Server and associated replica servers have a single Horizon Console. Depending on your VMware Horizon 8 deployment, you can get a Horizon Console interface with each instance of a Connection Server. For ease of management, VMware recommends configuring one Horizon Console interface per VMware Horizon 8 pod, which consists of a Connection Server and associated replica servers.
- Use the host name and IP address of the Connection Server to log in to Horizon Console. Use the Horizon Console interface to manage the Connection Server, and any associated replica servers.
- In a pod environment, verify that all administrators use the host name and IP address of the same Connection Server to log in to Horizon Console. Do not use the host name and IP address of the load balancer to access a Horizon Console web page.
- To identify the CPA pod or cluster name of the Connection Server you are working with, you can view the pod or cluster name in the Horizon Console header and in the web browser tab.
