Geek Week VDI: VMware View Composer configuration (Part 2)

In this video from Geek Week: VDI, VMware's Todd Dayton takes us through the process of using VMware View Composer to deploy a single master Windows XP desktop that can be shared by multiple users. Specific things covered in the video include:

  • De-provisioning our "Individual Desktop" pool image
  • Creating an Automated Desktop Pool based on that image
  • Configuring the new desktop pool
  • Making a test connection

For a full analysis of the results of this video, read our summary of how VMware View 4 did in our Geek Week: VDI project. This video is part of our "Geek Week: VDI" project where Gabe and Brian tested five VDI products in five days.
