I'm doing a POC with Horizon for a possible implementation at a client of mine. Their scenario is NOT virtual machines but 15 physical computers that need to be shared with 100 people. I can't change it (it's written in stone).
The main problem I have to solve is: the login user on these computers MUST always be the same for each host, for example user1 = computer1, user2 = computer2, and so on. But the users that must have access to the computer pool (Horizon) can, and would be very nice, be controlled by a security group in ADDS.
They know two pools, one with 10 physical computers and the other with 5 physical computers, so the idea would be to create two security groups in AD, Pool1 and Pool2, assigning AD users to these groups.
After that I would assign these groups to the pool on Horiozon. BUT the login user on the computers CANNOT be the user of each person, but a unique user for each computer.
It would be like this:
Client (someone/domain) >>> Hoizon >>> Host1 (user1/domain)
Client (someone_else/domain) >>> Hoizon >>> Host2 (user2/domain)
How could I configure the Horizon pool to work that way?
Live long and prosper,
Marcelo, I'm not sure if I understand you correctly.
Let me try to clarify:
You don't want a user, that has already been authenticated against Horizon, to automatically login to a Desktop with the same "Pool-credentials", but rather use a different user account that is speficic to that Desktop. Did I understand you correctly?
If so, there's a setting for that:
I restarted the Horizon Services after implementing those changes, just to be on the safe side.
