Connecting VMware Horizon 7.11 administrator to VMware vCenter

Horizon_LogoVMware Horizon, formerly called Horizon View, is a desktop and app virtualization product developed by VMware. It was first released under the name VMware VDM, but with the release of version 3.0.0 in 2008 it was changed to VMware. The name was       updated to Horizon View with the launch of version 6 in April 2014 and is now called VMware Horizon. The current version is 7.11.

Today I am connecting my VMware Horizon 7.11 environment to my VMware vCenter Appliance.

VMware supplies a list of permissions that needs to be configured for the account that is used for this connection. Here you can find a complete list of the required priveledges for the account for the VMware vCenter connection.

Click Settings >  Server Add vCenter
