(7 in the Mirage series) Application Layer for management and release of typical mirage Cases

Source: Internet
Author: User

In the classic user cases and real case analysis of VMware horizon mirage (Mirage Series II), we have introduced that mirage logically splits the terminal desktop into three layers: system layer (including driver and base layer), application layer, and user data layer. In (Mirage Series 5) the desktop driver and basic layer management in the Mirage classic case, we talked about how mirage can flexibly and conveniently manage the driver of the terminal and release the basic layer. This article describes how to manage the application layer of a mirage terminal.

A company often has many departments, and the work software required by each department is also different. Mirage uses the core layer technology to strip the application layer, allowing administrators to manage various software as they wish.

The application layer provides the following functions:

1. Capture the application layer

2. Release Application Layer

The following describes in sequence.

I. Capture the application layer

In mirage, an application layer contains the files and configurations generated when the application is installed. Mirage obtains the application layer by comparing the system status before the application is installed and the system status after the application is installed. Therefore, Mirage captures the application layer on a suspended terminal. The capture process consists of the following three steps:

1. Pre-system scan: the user initiates this operation from the Mirage console. Mirage records the status of the current system during this process. The procedure is as follows:

A. Entry: Common wizards> captureapp Layer

B. Select a terminal in the suspended status. (Note: After the Mirage client is installed and connected to the correct mirage server, the terminal is suspended and displayed in the pendingdevices directory of the Mirage Management Console)

C. Follow the Wizard to complete the steps.

D. After the Wizard is completed, there is a task under task monitoring: captureapp layer:

At the same time, the terminal has the following information:

2. After the user installs the application, the terminal displays the following information:

You can start to install the application. You can install multiple applications. For example, install Python and Java. That is to say, an application layer can contain multiple applications. In addition, you can restart the terminal as required during installation.

3. Post-system scan: after the required application is installed, the user initiates this operation from the Mirage console. Mirage compares the current system status with the result of step 1 to generate an application layer that protects the installed application. The procedure is as follows:

A. Portal: Right-click a task and choose finalize app layer capture.

B. Follow the Wizard to complete the steps.

The captured application layer is displayed in the Mirage console imagecomposer> app layers.

Ii. Release Application Layer

After capturing the application layer, you should also test it. See the Mirage document. I will not go into details here.

To publish an application layer, follow these steps:

1. Entry: Common wizards> Update app Layers

2. Select the target terminal. You can select the terminal one by one or select collection.

3. Select the required application layer from the available application layer list and move it to the allocation application layer list.

4. Follow the wizard.

5. After the Wizard is completed, there will be a new task. 650) This. width = 650; "src =" http://s3.51cto.com/wyfs02/M00/41/64/wKiom1PU3B_SV7WDAA0ZbPP9qIw498.bmp "Title =" step4-update.bmp "alt =" wkiom1pu3b_sv7wdaa0zbpp9qiw498.bmp "/>

After the task is completed, the application layer release ends. You can use published applications on the corresponding terminal.

This is the first time that we will talk about Desktop Management in our blog.
