Login and Connect to Assigned Desktop

The last step of Desktop deployment is user login from respective clients.

To verify if the pool is configured properly administrator can get users to login from appropriate devices to verify if only assigned Desktops is provided. Consider the examples below:

    • Device based permanent assigned pool with assignments are done manually as follows
      • Pool Configuration:
        • Desktop-1 (Responding state) assigned to Device-1
        • Desktop-2 (Responding state) assigned to Device-1
      • Login Process:
        • Login from Device-1 with user credentials on successful authentication will configure Desktop-1 for remote access and will provide session on device-1
        • In a same manner login from Device-2 will provide session of Desktop-2
    • User based temporary assigned pool with auto assignment
      • Pool Configuration
        • Users – User-1 and User-2 are configured as clients in pool
        • Desktops – Desktop-1 and Desktop-2 are configured in pool and in responding state
      • Login Process:
        • Login from any of registered device with user-1 credentials will provide session of any of Desktops I.e. Desktop-1 and Desktop-2. Assume session of Desktop-1 is provided to User-1
          • Now if User-2 attempts to login when desktop session of Desktop-1 is running then session of Desktop-2 will be provided to User-2.
        • Once desktop sessions are ended assignments will be removed and next logon from User-1 or User-2 credentials will randomly provide session of any of Desktops I.e. User-1 can be provided with session of Desktop-2 or Desktop-1.

Now administrator has successfully verified that the Desktop Pool is successfully configured and users are able to connect to respective Desktops, administrator can happily work on other tasks when zPortal Controller takes care of user access configuration and relevant tasks.

Note: Desktop Pool creation manages up to Desktop to Client (Devices/ Users) assignment level; the overall success of getting session depends on various other factors which must be addressed for successful zPortal deployment. Few such factors are:

    • zPortalTools especially zPortal Desktop Agent installation on target Desktops: zPortal Desktop Agent ensures RDP enabling for logged-in user and several other
    • Appropriate authentication server configuration and user credentials
    • Appropriate RDP Security Protocol and Connection Profile configurations on devices/clients/desktop pools
