The workflow for managing a View desktop pool consists of various procedures.

  1. Capture initial base and app layers.

  2. Create a virtual machine.

  3. Assign the base layer and any app layers to the virtual machine.

  4. Create a template from the virtual machine and create a full-clone View desktop pool from the template.

  5. Create CVDs for all desktops in the newly created pool.

When you need to update a base layer or app layer, perform an image update on the relevant CVDs.

  1. Capture new or updated base layers or app layers.

  2. Assign the new layers to the pool.

The desktop machines are updated until all the machines have the new layers.
