4.XD 5.6 - XenDesktop VMware and Golden Image Best practice
Posted on 2013-06-16
We have deployed XD 5.6 on VMWare 5 using vCenter 5
All looks well for now.
I have 4 hosts which will act as Desktop Pod (i.e host the virtual desktops)
Some doubts I have :
1.What is the best way to structure the hosts under vCenter.
Shall I create a folder or Datacenter first > Then a vApp , or Cluster or Resource Pool or a combination
I wish to have a highly available environment and a best performance , maybe hierarchy doesnt matter much , but i would really appreciate any suggestions
Any one who has had the experience with what hierarchy should i design in VCenter to host my desktops.
2.The VM that acts as the golden Image for my future Virtual Desktops , (I got a suggestion to fine tune it and then turn it off and manually create a snapshot of it) , Then use the snapshot for the catalog creation in XD instead of the golden image itself. Any more suggestions on this .
