Prerequisites

IT Asset Management (Cloud)

VMware Horizon adapter

The VMware Horizon adapter is available in the FlexNet Beacon UI from IT Asset Management 2022 R1 onwards.

The VMware Horizon adapter requires the following:
  • VMware Horizon version 8.0.0 or higher.
  • VMware Horizon version 2012 or higher, if you are using cloud pod architecture.
  • Create at least one desktop pool that will provide non-persistent VDIs to users.
  • Install the FlexNet inventory agent. It is recommended that you install the FlexNet inventory agent onto the VDI template to ensure inventory from at least one VDI device can be collected per desktop pool, unless another inventory source is providing software inventory from the VDI devices.
    Tip: The "VDI template" terminology is used in the IT Asset Management UI. For customers not familiar with this terminology, the "VDI template" can also be referred to as the "golden image virtual machine".
  • An inventory beacon (or multiple if required) that collects Active Directory data from the domain where the users are located who have been given access to a desktop pool.
  • Configure a connection in the FlexNet Beacon UI to a single connection server in each pod, or in the case of a pod federation a single connection server in that federation. See Creating the VMware Horizon Connection.
  • PowerShell 5.0 or higher on the beacon where the VMware Horizon adapter is set up.

The Citrix Cloud adapter requires the following:
  • Any version of Citrix Remote PowerShell SDK installed onto the beacon.
  • Create at least one delivery group that will provide non-persistent VDIs to users.
  • Install the FlexNet inventory agent. It is recommended that you install the FlexNet inventory agent onto the VDI template to ensure inventory from at least one VDI device can be collected per delivery group, unless another inventory source is providing software inventory from the VDI devices.
    Tip: The "VDI template" terminology is used in the IT Asset Management UI. For customers not familiar with this terminology, the "VDI template" can also be referred to as the "golden image virtual machine".
