VMware Fling – View Auditing Portal
Today VMware Labs released a new fling, the View Auditing Portal which is a new web portal that serves as an extension to Horizon View Administrator.
View Auditing Portal features:
- Show parent virtual machines of linked clone desktop pools and descendant snapshots in a tree view.
The snapshots not in use by linked clone pools are marked in grey, so that View administrator can remove the snapshots not in use.
- Show statistics for operation systems and versions of View clients in different types of view styles.
- Show virtual desktop connections by desktop pools, and show virtual application connections by RDS (Remote Desktop Service) Farms.
For this new fling you need the following:
- View Connection Server 6.0.
- Horizon View 6.
Step 1: Download the View Auditing Portal.
Step 2: Copy viewauditing.war to “C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\broker\webapps” on the View Connection Server.
Step 3: Wait for 2 minutes, and then open “https://[ViewServer]/viewauditing/” with your browser
