VMware View Bootcamp Mobile Secure Desktop – Day 1

– Load balancing, vShield, AD, CA, Radius, View Considerations

Fully validated configuration, meant as a base to be updated to work for your needs.
– End user devices
– Connect via internal (trusted) or external networks (untrusted)
– L7 LB between networks
– Security servers send traffic to Connection Managers
– Infrastucture Services (AD DCs, DNS, SSO, CA, Radius, F&P, Backup)
– vCenter, vShield, AV, VC Ops Manager
– VMware View desktop pools

Provide Mobility for VD session, Security, User Experience

Items to consider
– IP Schema, VLANs, routing and DNS
– AD topology (child domains? new forest?)
– Security requirments and policies
– Application workload (what are the apps), ThinApp/AppV/XenApp or installed into image
– WAN/LAN QoS for real time/high speed access
– Compliance requirments

Load Balancing and namespace services (cap2)

vSheild – security zone around vm pools, apps, infrastructure
– Define rules in advance as part of scoping/documentation
– Remember rules for view agent/client/server communications and display
– Generate support logs from vSheild

vShield Endpoint
– AV/Malware at hypervisor level per VM host
– Tune AV strategy

Active Directory considerations
– Eval existing AD
– New domain?
– Enough resources in a site?
– Configure sites and subnets for DC/replication
– Enterprise CA needs to be configured in Forest Root Domain

– 2 Factor
– Plan for extra conection servers with redundancy
– Validated design uses MS Radius

Persona Management
– Roam user data/settings
– VMs for hosting profiles
– Use persona or roaming profiles – not both
– Folder redirection
– App specific requirments such as ThinApp
– AV strategy using persona – scanning of vSheild Endpoint

vSphere and View considerations
– Using vDS (virtual distributed switch)
– Auto-Deploy and host profiles
– DHCP and load balancing
