Introducing the Horizon View Configuration Tool

Ever wished you could just deploy an OVA to setup your new View environment? Now you can! Thanks to Marilyn Basanta - a Solutions Management Engineer at VMware!

The Horizon View Configuration Tool automates Horizon View 5.3 installation and deployment. It removes the complexities and manual steps required for setting up a basic Horizon View deployment.


The vCT ships as a virtual appliance with all the required VMware components to set up your Horizon View environment. After providing a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 ISO, an ESX host (not managed by vCenter), a few parameters, and licenses, the tool will provision your environment dynamically and automatically. The vCT deploys the following components:

  • Virtual machine with Active Directory Domain Controller configured (or you may integrate with the existing DC in your environment)

  • Virtual machine with Horizon View Connection Server installed

  • Virtual machine with Horizon View Composer installed

  • vCenter Server Appliance virtual machine deployed and configured

** Note this is a Tech Preview and is NOT going to be supported by VMware Global Support Services.
