If you’re here it means that you’re accomplished with the following configuration steps from my previous blog post, deploying Horizon Connector into your On-Premises infrastructure.
Moving on our configuration, your appliance should be at the following state, according picture below.
Before configure our appliance we need to make two simple (but important) actions:
1- Set SSH Access
Logging into your Horizon Connector using the same root password you used during deployment.
Go into /opt/vmware/bin/ folder and run the Python Script configure-adapter.py with –sshEnable option:
2- Run PreCheck scripts
If you’re using Horizon Connector version 1.6 and later, you need to run the PreCheck script into /opt/vmware/bin/ folder with you Horizon Connection Server FQDN Name, according the following link.
3- Configure your Horizon Connector using Web Browser
Access your Horizon Connector Web Browser to start configuring it.
The following screen will appear:
Add with your environment details: Connection Server URL (external or internal), Domain, Username and Password, according privileges written in here.
The next screen will ask for a PoD name, which will be a Capacity into Horizon Service Plane:
The last step will validate all previous settings and finish Horizon Connector configuration:
At this point, your license should be changed to Horizon Subscription License.
Note: If this status did not change in 48 hours after this configuration, get in contact with your VMware representative.
4- Finishing Configuration from Horizon Service Plane side
Once your configuration is successfully done from On-Premises side, we need to validate the information and finish Active Directory Bind into Horizon Service Plane.
If everything is done successfully from Horizon Connector side, the following page will be displayed and a green mark will be into On-Premises Capacity.
A few steps need to be configured following the Getting Started page:
Add a MyVMware account
You need to add a second MyVMware account or give access to more administrators from your organization. Just type First, Last name and e-mail address corresponding with MyVMware account.
Register your Active Directory
The following page will be displayed:
Fill the information properly with Username and Password with corresponding permissions written into this link.
Follow with Domain Join action
Now add your a User Group into administrator group:
If all configuration were done properly, you will be redirected into login page to validate your Domain Username and Password:
Now all services have been completed and you’re ready to start your new Universal Experience
