In this video from Geek Week: VDI, VMware's Todd Dayton takes us through the initial installation and configuration of VMware View 4 on a vanilla ESX environment. This video includes the installation and configuration of:

  • VMware View Composer

  • VMware View Manager
  • Installing Windows XP into a VM
  • Installation of the VMware Tools and the View Agent into the VM
  • Creation of an "Individual Desktop" pool containing a single VM
  • Initial connection testing

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.
