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
