Configuring New Host Pools and Assigning Users

 


 

Part 1 - Configuring New AVD Host Pools

Video Guide

 

 

To create a host pool, follow the article on creating host pools in NMM. If you imported an image from NFA in the previous section, select that image when creating the new host pool. Add one or two users to the host pool to be able to verify the host pool has been created properly.

Once the host pool is created, set the Auto-scale settings to mirror the settings used in NFA. Note that there will be more options available in NMM than there were in NFA.

For more information on host pools in NMM, see the Overview of Host Pools.

 

(Optional) Importing Personal Desktops

Personal Desktops created in NFA will have to be moved to AVD ARM manually (or you may continue operating them in AVD Classic, though NMM will not be able to see or manage them).


To migrate the personal desktops, create a new Single User Desktop (personal) pool in NMM, and set the host count to 0.

Then register the existing VMs to the new host pool, following Microsoft's documentation.

 

Part 2 - Adding users to new host pools

Video Guide

 

 

Now that the new NMM host pool is ready, it's time to assign users and/or groups to the new host pool. Follow the Overview of Users and Overview of Groups articles to assign users and groups to the host pools. 

 

Part 3 (Optional) - Testing Prior to Cutover

This is a great opportunity to poll some users at your customer and have them test the new environment.  A User can be assigned to both the NFA classic desktop and the new NMM ARM desktop at the same time.  This allows for parallel testing.
