Configure the Host Pool's Active Directory Settings

Configure the Host Pool's Active Directory Settings

By default, every host pool uses the global default Active Directory configuration that was used when Nerdio Manager was installed. Nerdio Manager allows you to create multiple Active Directory profiles containing different service accounts and OUs, if required, We can then use these multiple profiles on different host pools.

To configure Active Directory for a host pool:

  1. Locate the host pool you wish to work with.

  2. From the action menu, select Properties Directory.

  3. Enter the following information:

    • AD Configuration: From the drop-down list, select the Active Directory configuration.

      For a custom configuration, enter the following:

      • Directory: From the drop-down list, select the directory.

      • AD Domain: Type the domain for session host VMs to join in Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) format.

      • AD Username: Type the username in FQDN format.

        Note: This user must have permissions to create computer objects in the OU specified below and the ability to disable these AD computer objects when the VM leaves the AD domain.

      • AD Password: Type the password.

      • Organization Unit: Type the OU name in Distinguished Name (DN) format.

        Note: This is the OU where all session host VMs and Desktop Images AD computer objects are created by default. Leaving this field blank places all the computer objects in the computer's AD container.

  4. When you have entered all the desired information, select Save or Save & close.
