VMware View – Objective 3.3 Configure Manual Pools


  • Identify pool settings
  • Identify desktop sources

In blog post VMware View – Objective 3.1 Configure Automated Pools Using Linked Clones, we covered identify pool settings.  So in this blog post, we will look explicitly at ‘identify desktop sources’.

Back into View Administrator > Inventory > Pools > Add

View Manual Pool 1

Select Manual Pool

Manual Pool 1

Select Dedicated as the User Assignment

Manual Pool 2

Ah ha, something different, we know how a choice of vCenter Virtual Machines, which is any VM you have created or it can be a Phsyical Computer you want to access remotely and let View Broker the connection to it.

Manual Pool 3

From this point forward, all the rest of the choices are exactly the same as with a Linked Clone or Full Automated Pool.  So thanks for reading!
