Mirage is optimized for dedicated assignment desktop pools of full-clone virtual machines.

Follow the instructions in the VMware View Administration Guide to create a dedicated assignment desktop pool that contains full-clone virtual machines.

Considerations and Recommendations when Creating a Desktop Pool

Keep the following information in mind when you create a desktop pool.

  • Select Ensure desktops are always powered on so that the virtual machines receive image updates when they are available.

  • When prompted, specify the virtual machine that you created earlier. See Creating a Virtual Machine Template for the View Pool.

  • To simplify management when you use Mirage, use a name pattern for the created desktops.
