How To: Replace Horizon View Connection & Security Server
You can use Horizon Administrator and the new Horizon Console to monitor desktop and application sessions. These consoles give you a view into details from a farm, pool, or machine perspective. For example, you can see how many sessions are active for a pool. If you need to drill down into details for a particular user, the new Help Desk Tool is preferred, as is described in later exercises.
The default is Wait for users to log off. If, instead, you select to force users to log off, you can give users a warning and a grace period of 5 minutes, by default. To edit this setting, after you finish creating the schedule, navigate to Settings Global Settings , and click Edit in the General settings section.

Great articles as always. I did have one point of information that perhaps you could clarify. In my environment, we did setup 7 connection servers, a primary and a replica. We also have a Kemp VLB load balancing the 7. What is the proper method for upgrading them in a nondisruptive way? We do not have tunneling enabled, so users are connecting directly to their persistent VDI 8767 s through the UAG 8767 s. Should I disable a connection server inside of Horizon? Inside of the Kemp console? Both? One server was rebooted post windows updates and every connection was disconnected. both connection servers stopped accepting connections even though only 6 was rebooted.
Interestingly, in the connections server security logs, sometimes there are no audit failed or succeeded entries for these people. Its almost like they are authenticating to some phantom connections server. Any ideas?
Linked clones allow administrators to easily create and manage pools of similar desktops. Because linked-clone desktops share a base system-disk image, they use less storage than full VMs. All linked-clone desktops can be patched or updated by updating the master VM and VM snapshot.
When you use automated instant-clone RDSH server farms, you can rapidly change the size of the farm, refresh the servers back to their original state and disk size, or update the servers to use a new master image. Performing maintenance on an instant-clone farm means deleting the VMs in the farm and either recreating them from the current master image or creating VMs from a new master image, or snapshot.
