Title – Deploy Horizon View LCs from single Gold image to multiple vLANs
Author/Architect – Kevin Martin
Summary – This document outlines the process to be able to deploy VMware View linked clones from a single master/gold Windows7 image to multiple vLANs. Network design is often overlooked when it comes to deploying 100’s or 1000’s of desktop VM’s. Available IPs may become an issue when deploying VMware View at scale. One way around this is to deploy multiple Gold images, 1 per vLAN/subnet. This can become a burden in terms of having to manage multiple images when it comes to common tasks associated with end user computing such as application updates, Windows updates, virus definitions, etc. As of VMware Horizon View version 5.2, you now have the supported ability to deploy a single gold image to multiple vLANs via utilizing the provided Powershell scripts included with installation of the View Connection server.
Prerequisites – VMware Horizon View 5.2 must be installed and the deployment method must be View Composer. Common network understanding of deployment of DHCP scopes addressing multiple vLANs and switch configuration (IPHELPER, vSWITCH CONFIG, etc.)

Last week, Symantec was in our Irvine office highlighting their new investment in Trace3 – making some “Big Bets” on the growth and success we will achieve, as well as the new enhancements made to their partner program. In addition to enjoying appetizers and beverages, all attendees took him a custom water bottle filled with goodies and had a chance to make a “big bet” and spin the roulette wheel to take home an iPad Mini!

“It is also a good practice to open early discussions with key channel partners such as Trace3 and Cambridge Computer, who have experience in guiding early-stage startups to expand your beta customer pipeline. They give you an extraordinary amount of leverage in helping you focus your resources on your direct engagements.”
