You can use the vdmadmin command with the -C option to set the name of a View Connection Server group. The Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) console displays this name to help you identify the group within SCOM.


vdmadmin -C [-b authentication_arguments] [-c groupname]

You must name a View Connection Server group if you intend to use SCOM to monitor and manage the state of View Manager components. View Administrator does not display the name of a group. Run the command on a member of the group that you want to name.

If you do not specify a name for the group, the command returns the GUID of the group to which the local View Connection Server instance belongs. You can use the GUID to verify whether a View Connection Server instance is a member of the same View Connection Server group as another View Connection Server instance.

For a description of how to use SCOM with View, see the VMware Horizon View Integration document.

The -c option specifies the name of the View Connection Server group. If you do not specify this option, the command returns the GUID of the group.

Set the name of a View Connection Server group to VCSG01.

vdmadmin -C -c VCSG01

Return the GUID of the group.

vdmadmin -C
