Overview of this book

VMware Horizon 7 has been a buzz since it was announced. One of the major reasons is the introduction of the new Instant Clones feature.

We'll explore the latest features of the platform, including those added through product acquisitions such as User Environment Manager and App Volumes. Further on, you will also be introduced to the new capabilities added to the core product such Linked-Clone RDS pools. Upon completion of this book, you will have an understanding of the capabilities and benefits VMware Horizon can provide to your organization, and how each of its components are implemented.

Preface

Requesting a certificate using Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services


Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services is an optional component of the Windows Server operating system which enables organizations to create their own private certificate authority. Similar functionality is available with alternative operating systems, but many organizations that have a large Windows infrastructure often already rely on AD Certificate Services to provide a number of different client and server certificates.

We will use AD Certificate Services to request certificates for each of the Horizon components. The process is the same for each, although App Volumes Manager servers, Horizon Security Servers, and Horizon Access Points may require additional information to be provided in step 5 in the following procedure. Consult the next section of this chapter for instructions on how to add additional DNS names and IP addresses, known as Subject Alternative Names (SAN), to a certificate request.
