Once Horizon FLEX virtual machines are deployed, you can manage them by performing different operations. You can view the inventory of deployed Horizon FLEX virtual machines in the Horizon FLEX Admin Console.

You can use the Search text box to filter the virtual machine list and the sortable column headings to find a specific virtual machine. Use the column heading drop-down menu to select the columns to view or hide.
