View Transfer Server transfers data between local desktops and the datacenter during check in, check out, and replication. To install View Transfer Server, you install the software on a Windows Server virtual machine, add View Transfer Server to your View Manager deployment, and configure the Transfer Server repository.

You must install and configure View Transfer Server if you deploy View Client with Local Mode on client computers.

You must have a license to install View Transfer Server and use local desktops.

1

View Transfer Server downloads system-image files, synchronizes data between local desktops and the corresponding remote desktops in the datacenter, and transfers data when users check in and check out local desktops. You install View Transfer Server in a virtual machine that runs Windows Server.

2

View Transfer Server works with View Connection Server to transfer files and data between local desktops and the datacenter. Before View Transfer Server can perform these tasks, you must add it to your View Manager deployment.

3

The Transfer Server repository stores View Composer base images for linked-clone desktops that run in local mode. To give View Transfer Server access to the Transfer Server repository, you must configure it in View Manager. If you do not use View Composer linked clones in local mode, you do not have to configure a Transfer Server repository.

4

Certain incoming TCP ports must be opened on the firewall for View Transfer Server instances.

5

You can install View Transfer Server silently by typing the installer filename and installation options at the command line. With silent installation, you can efficiently deploy View components in a large enterprise.
