After you install the SSL Server certificate, you configure the Mirage server maximum CVD connections and transport settings.

About this task

Allocate a larger number of concurrent CVDs for high-end servers, or a smaller number for low-end servers. For more information about this modification, contact VMware Support.


  1. In the Mirage Management console tree, expand the System Configuration node and select Servers.
  2. Right-click the required server and select Configure.
  3. Enter the appropriate configuration options.



    Max Connections

    Type the maximum number of concurrent CVD connections. The range is from 1 to 2500.


    Change the port used for client-server communication. Either use the default port of 8000 or change the port. Changing the port might require adding firewall rules to open the port.

    TCP or SSL

    Change the connection type to SSL to have clients communicate with the server using SSL encryption. This is a global change.

  4. (Optional) If you selected SSL, enter the Certificate subject and Issuer values.



    Certificate Subject

    Typically the FQDN of the Mirage server.

    Certificate Issuer

    Usually a known entity like VeriSign. Leave this blank if only one certificate is on this server.

  5. Click OK.
