8.2.2. Editing Desktop Pools

You can edit some details of a pool such as the Name and Description, you can change the pool type, and add virtual machines to the pool. However, you cannot change any parameters on the Windows Sys Prep, Console, Allocation or Boot Sequence groups.


Changes do not apply to existing virtual machines, only to virtual machines that are created after the change is made.

  3. Click the Edit button.
    The Edit pool dialog box opens.
  4. This dialog box is identical to the New Pool dialog box, except that fields that cannot be changed are disabled. Make other changes as appropriate. See Section 8.1, “Creating Desktop Pools” .
  5. Click OK.
    The details of the desktop pools are updated.
