You must perform several configuration tasks to add physical machines and non-vSphere virtual machines, such as machines created in Citrix XenServer, Microsoft HyperV, or VMware Workstation, to manual unmanaged desktop pools.

After you meet the requirements in Prerequisites for Adding Unmanaged Machines to Pools, you must complete the following tasks:

  1. Enable Windows Remote Management, set remote execution policies, add the vRealize Orchestrator server as a trusted host, and enable communication with the PowerShell plug-in. For information, see Configure a Physical Machine for an Unmanaged Pool.
  2. Configure the vRealize Orchestrator server to use Kerberos authentication. For information, see Configure vRealize Orchestrator to Use Kerberos Authentication with Physical Machines.
  3. Run the Add Physical Machines to Pool workflow in the Workflows/Example folder, or run the Register Machines to Pool workflow and run the PowerShell workflows described in Run Workflows to Add Physical Machines as PowerShell Hosts.
