You can manage the CVD by performing tasks on the CVD you selected from the CVD in the collection or from the general search function.

There are several methods to manage a CVD. In the Collections, you select the CVD from the list of CVDs in the collection. From the general search function, you select the CVD from the CVD Search list.

In addition to the tasks for managing CVDs in a collection, you can manage the CVD by performing the following tasks:

The device driver library contains hardware specific drivers in a separate repository, organized by hardware families. You can set a device driver library to a CVD or to a collection of CVDs.

You can enforce and remotely restart (reboot) a Mirage client device when the user does not reboot on a request from the Mirage client.

You can suspend network communications with the Horizon Mirage server for endpoint devices.

You can resume network server operations on a device after network server operations have been suspended.

You can synchronize a device with the corresponding CVD on the Mirage server to ensure that the device is properly backed up.

You can generate system log reports for the device attached to the Horizon Mirage server.

Users and applications might make changes to files and registry settings that were provisioned through a base layer or app layer. Sometimes these changes create problems with the desktop operation. In most cases, you can resolve the problem by enforcing the layer originally assigned to the CVD.

You can restore device files to a previous CVD snapshot, or restore a device from a CVD following hard drive replacement, file corruption, or format, or when the device is replaced.

Mirage client end-users can use the Horizon Mirage file portal to browse and view files in their CVD.

You can add and update a note for a specific device. The note is free-form text and you have a maximum of 150 characters to type a note.

You can completely delete a CVD from the Horizon Mirage server. This option also deletes the CVD from the collection.

You can transfer a CVD that is not immediately required to the CVD archive.

An upload policy determines which files and directories to upload from the user endpoint to the CVD in the data center. You can assign an upload policy to all CVDs in the collection or to an individual CVD in a collection.

You can add a collection to the CVD or remove a collection from a CVD.

You can move a CVD to a different storage volume, according to your disk organization requirements.

You can generate a CVD Integrity report to verify that a CVD is consistent and free of corruption, and can continue to reside in the system and can be used for restore and other purposes.
