VMware Certified Professional 6 — Desktop and Mobility Exam2V0-651 VCP6-DTM
We look at the prerequisites of the 2V0-651 exam which must be passed in order to gain the VCP6-DTM: VMware Certified Professional 6 – Desktop and Mobility certification. We learn the exam topics and objectives.
Install Horizon (with View) Server Components
We install the Horizon View 6 Connection Server, learning the system requirements, the types of connection servers, how to configure Windows Firewall and set the default administrator.
We learn that we must license the Horizon View Connection Server before it can be used, even in a test environment. We walkthrough the process of licensing the connection server.
In this chapter, we create a certificate template for use with VMware Horizon View using a Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Enterprise Certificate Authority (CA).
Using the SSL certificate template we created in the previous chapter, we learn how to use Active Directory auto enrollment to assign a certificate to our VMware Horizon View Connection Server.
We learn why it is advantageous to configure an Events Database. We setup this database in this chapter.
In this chapter, we learn why we should connect our Horizon View environment to our existing VMware vCenter infrastructure. We use a previously created Active Directory domain account to link the two environments.
We use the account we granted vCenter permissions to in the previous chapter to add the vCenter server to our Horizon View environment. We learn the advantages of View Storage Accelerator.
In this chapter, we learn about Access Groups, Roles and Administrator privileges in Horizon View. We create a privilege based on an Active Directory group.
We learn how to configure Smart Card authentication and look at the required settings for configuring RADIUS authentication.
Test your knowledge of the 2V0-651 exam objective ‘Installation and Configuration’ using this test.
Configuring Manual Desktop Pools
We begin our look into Manual Pools by installing the Horizon View Agent on a physical machine. We learn the advantages the View Agent can bring us, such as Virtual Printing and HTML Access.
Continuing from the previous chapter, we create a Manual Desktop Pool with the physical machine we previously prepared. We learn how to entitle users to this pool.
We create a Manual Desktop Pool from a virtual machine contained within our vCenter server. We learn how we can used the bandwidth efficient PCoIP display protocol.
Before we connect to any of our Desktop Pools, we must install the Horizon View Client on our client machine. We learn how to do this and some of the features installing this enables.
We use the VMware Horizon View Client to connect to our previously created Manual Desktop Pools. We learn some basic troubleshooting if we are able to connect.
